So...today I was at my local GC picking up another SM57 (always useful to have several!). And as I was paying at the register, the salesman, who knows me and my son well from coming in over quite a few years asked, "How's Jamie doing?"
I said, "Great, in fact he just started a European tour with 30 Seconds to Mars!"
And a goofy young guy behind the counter at the next register sniped in a really sarcastic voice, "Thirty Seconds to Mars??? They're still even a baaaand?"
I'm sure that steam must have come out of my ears, but I just smiled.
What I wanted to say was...
"They're gigging a festival tonight in front of tens of thousands of people in Ireland, what are your plans Zitface?"
But I bit my own tongue, and what I actually said was,
"Yeah, they're touring behind their new record and they asked my son to join the tour."
I spent the drive home thinking of equally pointed remarks.
"What I shoulda said was..." "Gosh I should have told that guy..." "Grrrr...."
Hahaha. I had to post this. You guys know how I am, it was really difficult reining in my sarcasm.
