I was walking through the grocery store when a man passed me going the opposite direction down the aisle.
He looked out of place, and agitated.
He looked out of place because he was dressed for a Jimmy Buffet concert.
He was agitated because he couldn’t find something.
Parrothead: You would think the garbanzo beans would be with the beans, right?
Me: Right (smiling)
Parrothead: Well, they’re not.
Me: (clearly he was not capable of finding them on his own, and I was there..so) They are down this aisle here, by the vegetables. And they are often called ‘chickpeas’.
Me: Yep, and if you mash them up and add some oil, garlic, and lemon juice you’ve got hummus.
Parrothead: Hummus, huh?
Parrothead: Apparently, I need to watch a LOT more cooking shows. (walks away muttering to himself)
Me: (still standing there) And, I guess I watch way too many.
