Conversation with a clerk at a megastore, May 2003:

“Do you carry a DVD of Erroll Garner?”

“Oh, I know that. It’s like, um, adventures of Erroll Garner, right?”

“Uh, I don’t think so. It’s something like Erroll Garner in concert.”

“No, my boyfriend showed it to me. He, like, fights pirates and stuff, right?”

“Excuse me?”

Gary Giddins, “Weather Bird”.
