Carlisle, Rok, Nuke, and Nuke’s boyfriend (Scrappy) were all hanging out with me in the store last night, but we could barely hear each other, on account of the music from the bar was blasting at skull-shattering levels. So when Carlisle said something about bubble bath (which made sense in context), everyone else went, “Bubble meth? The hell is bubble meth? How would you even do bubble meth?!”
Well, everyone except me, because I was all, “Bubble math? The hell is bubble math? How would you even do bubble math?!”
The point here is that Rok and Nuke have terrible drug problems, whereas I will never stop being a Liberal Arts major.
Hey, want another solvent story? Of course you do.
Customer: [pointing to his straight female friend] “Do you carry butt plugs? She wants a butt plug.”
Me: “No. We do not carry butt plugs.”
Straight Female Friend: “Where could we find a butt plug?”
Me: “Well, you could try [sleazy store] or [sleazier store].”
Customer: “What about poppers? Do you sell poppers?”
Me: “We do not sell poppers, but we do sell solvents and polish removers.”
Customer: [dejected] “Oh. Okay, then.” [leaves]
Rok yelled, “SOLVENTS ARE THE SAME THING” as they walked out the door, but they didn’t hear him. I blame the music.
You know what would be funny, though? If, in a couple of months, one of them accidentally spills nail polish all over the place, and the other goes, “Quick! To the Forge!” If that happens, I’m totally going to be like, “Oh, sorry, guys. We only sell poppers.”
