eBay's Slippery Slope

It all starts so innocently--you find that your favorite online shoe store dumps their excess stock through an eBay store, and you score some great shoes, after learning that NIB means 'New In Box'. Then you start looking for vintage boots, and nab some awesome Lucchese boots. "Vintage" does mean previously worn, of course, but only in a cool way. Not in an someone's-actual-toes-touched-these-already. And then you forget about that whole NIB thing, and find the pair of sandals you really wished you bought yourself for the summer, and when they arrive, you discover you've bought someone else's shoes. As in they have someone else's toe marks in them.

And they go straight to the Goodwill pile.

Taking the 5th

We were in the car, listening to the radio as they played songs from my college days. I was lost in my reverie after hearing Psychedelic Furs "Heartbreak Beat", and the DJ's started talking about clubs. One mentioned that someone talked him into putting a little tablet under his tongue, and the rest of the night was a multi-colored blur.

Conor asked, "What's a tablet"

I explained it's a kind of a pill.

"Why would you put one under your tongue?", he asked.

Well, it's a good way to dissolve it and get to the medicine inside.

"Have you ever done that in a nightclub?"

Uh, Conor, let me explain the 5th Amendment to you.
