gold hisui from rasetsunyo

(no subject)

I'm at the supermarket today when I suddenly register that the black jacket on the guy in front of me (grey blow-away hair, ancient hippie, rather like myself) has a pattern of the four guardian beasts on the back. Some HK import product, I assume, available maybe in Chinatown? A distinct step up, quality-wise, from the stock imports with mythical beasts on them. 'Scuse me,' I say, 'where'd you get your jacket?' 'I'd tell you but I don't know,' he says. 'Someone left it in a bar and never came back to claim it, so I took it. No idea where it's from except this--' and he shows me the zipper pull which, contrary to all logic, says Nike.
