Disgusted

Sam and I went out for lunch today.

There was a TV on in the restaurant, some talk show or other, and they had a musical guest. A rapper.

I made the comment to Sam that rap is hardly music, in my opinion.

At which point the guy sitting at the table beside us pipes up and says:

"That's what Obama's victory speech will sound like."

No, I didn't hit him. I just turned away. I should have said something. I'm a coward.
