“Hey man, are you a music producer?”
The question comes from a tout who wants me to try his restaurant. I am not hungry, but I am curious.
“Why do you say that?”
“I just got a vibe,” he says. “You got the beard, the Dodgers cap, the hoodie. That’s all you need!”
“If that’s true, it sure explains a lot about music today.”
He laughs and tells me I’m funny; it’s redundant, but appreciated.
“Funny enough to get a discount?”
“Nobody’s that funny.”
