I asked the early-20s brunette cashier at True Value Hardware.
- "Well...I listen to either the radio station, like Z100, or I have YouTube on my phone so I plug that in through my car stereo sometimes."
Oh. I said. When you're listening to YouTube on your car stereo, what is something you might put on?
- "Umm...Chris Brown. Rihanna. Sean Kingston sometimes."
Cool. I said.
- "I'm a dancer," she explained. "I like music that's uplifting. That makes you wanna dance, like hop hop."
Okay. I said. So you're a dancer?
- "Not professionally. I just like hop hop. I dance to hip hop for fun. It's more of a hobby."
Right on. I said, and turned to go, with my box of 2" drywall screws in hand. Have a good one.
I walked out into the sunshine, where it felt like I was walking on sunshine, or even dancing. On sunshine.
