"That Guy"

Happy Humpday, Beatdowners.

I decided to take a break from my job search for a bit today - I ventured up to the Barnes and Noble in Ellicott City hoping to find a book I heard about - "The Breath of God", by Jeffery Small.

I find the book, buy it, and decide to read for a bit while the tiling of the master and hall bath gets finished up at home.

This Barnes and Noble has a Starbucks - so I decide to enjoy a Grande Decaf with Skim Milk and 3 Splenda.

I sit down, crack open the novel and blaze through 11 chapters, all the while sipping on the Starbucks coffee.

Then it hit me.

I was "that guy".



Sickened at the mere thought of being "that guy", I wrap up the chapter, polish off the coffee, and quickly exit the store.  I hop into my VW Jetta, select a playlist from my iPod nano, and head home to my townhouse in suburban Pasadena.

The song queued up on the nano?  "Caring Is Creepy" by The Shins.

Holding on to my last ounce of self respect, I won't continue this blog.

I suppose it could have been worse - I could have been reading from a Nook eReader.

Perhaps I can do that after Christmas.

Until next time - stay hip.
