It’s hard out there for a lawyer

M: I’m really bored today. I should bring in some music.

Me: Here, you can have my ipod, if you think it will help. I put some manlier music on there.

M: Like what?

Me: Aerosmith.

M: Aerosmith are so not manly.

Me: They are! I also have Fleetwood Mac.

M: Do you have any songs about killing people, doing drugs or (whispering) fucking bitches?

Me: Some.

It never ceases to amaze me that he, the politest, most enlightened, most considerate of individuals – and the whitest too – thinks gangsta rap and the like is manly and enjoyable. It’s cute.
