David is thinking about the meat faerie

How my day was made...

I went to my favorite local comic shop to pick up a few books. I go in often enough to be a regular and the woman who works there always asks about Roscoe.

Today when I went up to the cash register, the older balding store manager had his usually unkempt mustache waxed and turned upwards in sharp points. A Sousa march, played by a full brass band, started playing over the speakers.

They usually have our commercial free alterna-station KEXP on, so I asked if this was the radio.

The guy said, "No, it's my CD, I'm driving Emily crazy today with my music."

I said, "So, do you guys switch off days to take turns listening to one another's music?"

He smiled, "I only play my music once a year. It's March 4th."

He started marching in place with his hands up like they were hold a color guard baton.

"Get it? March 4th... Time to break out your marching music."

I couldn't stop laughing...
