Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

My mistake

Am sitting in Starbucks. Made the huge mistake of complimenting an older gentleman on his iPad.

“Hey, I bet you love that,” I said.

This is what followed …

“Blahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblah

blahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahl

blahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblah

lblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahl

blahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblah

blahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblah

blahblahblahblahlblahblahlblahblahblahblah.”

Ten minutes later, I’m back.
