Unicorns, Lil Troy, and the Best Bookstore in VT
Yesterday I graded essays at Northshire, THE BEST BOOKSTORE in Vermont. I got hopped up on cappuccino, scrawled notes about comma splices, and laughed at the unicorn in the children’s section. (Anyone watch HBO’s Bored to Death series? Schwartzman, Danson, and Galifianakis.) Anyway, the unicorn reminded me of the infamous Janet. She extends!
Shockingly, Lil Troy’s Wanna Be a Baller came on while I was in the café. In Vermont. It was kind of…magical. (...and as I was mouthing every single word, I was reminded of David Gates' provocative essay It's a White Thing. Makes one think.)
