Conversation I Had Tonight in Burger King on 116 and Lex

Peddler (carrying two black diaper bags): Yo mami, I got baby bags right here - two dollas. Two dollas, brand new. Two dollas.

Me: Oh, no thanks. I'm good. Thanks.

Peddler (stressing the quality of the wares): Brand new. Two dollas.

Me: No, no thanks.

Peddler (shuffling off, talking to himself): No, you don't need a baby bag. Brand new for two dollas. You wanna go buy a WHITE bag new for fifty bucks.

Me (silently, to myself): No, dude, I just don't wanna pay two dollars for a diaper bag anyone can get for free. I have one, in fact.

And don't worry, it's black.
