Brian is down at the riots in South LA for work and we have this phone conversation:
Brian: Well, this is going to be interesting.
Me: Are you going to be near Crenshaw?
Brian: Yeah why?
Me: Can you pick up some dried hibiscus flower from that Jamaican Market? I ran out.
Brian: You’re kidding right?
Me: Umm…no? Never mind, I thought it would be easy for you to grab when you get off work since you’ll be right there.
Brian: No, sorry.
a couple hours later….
Brian: What is the name the market uses for the dried hibiscus flower again?
When Twilight was released on DVD at midnight years ago, I realized Brian was going to be working (he had worked nights during this time). I asked him if he could go in during a break and pick it up for me (don’t judge me, I had an odd fascination with the series). He laughed, and I assumed the embarrassment factor was too high and I would not be getting the Twilight DVD that night.
The next morning I got up to make coffee and the DVD was sitting next to the coffee pot for me. It turns out Brian went in during his break at work and stood in line with the only other customers at Best Buy: three teenage girls who were also there to purchase the movie.
