I was pointing at the rafters, ready to call out "can I get a witness?"
I had a message from the store that the Constantine's debut cd I ordered a month ago had arrived, and I was feeling the love already.
But when I got there, hands all sweaty, heart pounding, buddy pulled out an lp.
He had marked the wrong format on the order form.
My turntable is kaput.
But it had been buddy's first day on the job the day I ordered, so I went easy on him.
Now I wait.
