So I'm down at the music store, buying yet another cable. Those 3.5mm connectors I've been using all these years? Kid stuff. Real men and women use quarter-inch and XLR connectors, and now that I'm set up with a Telos One and a mixer, I'm taking my first tentative steps into the world of grown-up audio.
Anyway, the credit card I fish out of my wallet is due to expire, so I switch to the new one and mention that I should remember to shred the old one. The music-store guy cracks me up with this line: "Identity theft? They can have mine. I hope they make out better with it than I did."
