Being original

November 13, 2007 at 10:49 am 7 comments

I was out with my friends on Friday night to hear a band play (Gas Money – pretty good indie band…. that was an unpaid endorsement!)  at Red Bones. While waiting for the music to start, I was standing at the bar getting a drink when a guy opened the conversation with me with the line ‘I saw you in traffic today.’

In response to my question of where, he replied ‘In New Kingston’.

Well, that’s a new one for me. I’m impressed – a line like that could be true of 90% of Kingstonians, yet it makes it seem like you stand out in traffic! I’ll give him marks for effort.
