To the person who laughed at me in the Silver Diner today

Yes, I know who Percy Sledge is.

I had made one of my favorite jokes while having lunch with my wife today. While browsing through the jukebox selections I saw “When a Man Loves a Woman” and made the comment that someone was stealing Michael Bolton’s song. Somebody at a nearby table burst out laughing. I probably had it coming, but I think I’m the one who ended up looking like the “no-talent ass clown” for saying that.

You can tell the difference between a laugh at something funny versus a laugh at incompetence. At least I had the presence of mind to introduce myself as Wayan to the laughing person.
