This is a conversation that took place at Bi-Rite Creamery. I didn’t actually say anything, but I’ll designate my thoughts by putting them in parentheses.
Vendor: So have you picked out your brackets and everything?
(Me: What brackets?)
E: Oh for March Madness? Well, my bracket is pretty easy to fill out. You see, I’m from Kansas (obvious pride).
(Me: Oh, this is a sports thing. Not interested.)
Vendor: KU, huh? So when I say “Rock Chalk,” you say…
E: (laughs) Jayhawk.
(Me (incredulous): Who are you?!)
