Omari: " So have you found any new stuff with that music you listen to?"

Me: "Henry Burr"
O: " Is he a modern singer?"
Me: No, he was big back then, original recordings from 1903 to 1928"
Omari: " Can you get that on i-tunes?"
Me: pausing, " Umm, I don't know, I don't download music from the internet, I'm not that technological"
O: mouth dropping, " You don't? where do you get this stuff from?"
Me: " JR Music"
Omari: pausing, " so you don't listen to any modern music at all?"
Me: " Sure...when I'm at the gym, but in my everyday life no, it stops at 1945, 1900 to 1945"
O: Do you have an I-Pod?"
Me: " no, I don't like them, I do have a small mp3 player though."
O: " Oh, ok" walks away shaking his head in amazement.
