-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Just returned from Wawa, victorious with my leet suboptimal protein warez.
There was an older Mexican guy with a cane, who was waiting on something, so he told me I should ahead of him: "Go ahead, holmes."
Do you have any idea how long it's been since someone's called me that with a real accent? For a split second, I was afraid I was in a Circle K in Yuma, and not a Wawa in Center City, Philly.
