He went to the corner store and never came back

I was standing in the beer aisle in the hipster grocery store and I cracked wise about the 80’s music playing over the PA. It was vacillating between hair bands and pseudo new wave. I guess new wave is a type of hair band as well. The guy stocking the shelves started telling me a story about a DJ playing Journey at a hip hop show when I noticed he had a tattoo with a Rodney Mullen graphic on it. You don’t see too many freestyle tattoos, so I commented on it. Then he shows me his Lance Mountain Future Primitives tattoo on one leg and Grosso graphic on the other. During this exchange I noticed his Green Bay Packers tattoo, which made me think of Wisconsin and the Turf, launching a whole other conversation… We could have shot the shit all night if he didn’t have to get back to work and I didn’t have to get dinner. Nice to meet you Jason!
