today i was at don quijote waiting in looooong check out line and the old lady in front of me was trying to chat me up:
what does your shirt say?
your basket looks heavy do you want to put it down?
(microwave popcorn, choco pie, coffee. my diet is embarrassing.)
this music is weird, don't you think they should play christmas carols?
and i perked my ears up to hear... MODEST MOUSE!
and i just smiled and said to her "well, it could've been would've been worse than you could ever know!"
to play this particular song in the store... wow. don quijote confirmed itself as weirdest grocery store in honolulu! but i don't think it's a bad thing; you know how much i love weird stuff. and it used to be worse! with the bird sounds and fake plants (those are gone now, probably a fire hazard)! i think they still have the giant roll of toilet paper hanging from the ceiling near the fruits and vegetables. holiday mart/daiei used to be a nice normal store now it's like sensory overload while shopping!
she sort of nodded so i continued,
"the dashboard melted but we still have the radio..."
now she is giving me a puzzled look.
"we schemed and we schemed but we already blew it, we've yet to crash but you might as well stow it..."
she turned around and stopped talking to me. hahaha.
