-Hah, yeah.

-Did you know that we can trace our name all the way back to the Mayflower?

-Nah, wild.

-It’s true, I’ve done the genealogy. You and me, we can be traced all the way back to the original pilgrims on the Mayflower.

-That’s wild.

-And also our name is even in the Bible!  We’re mentioned in the Bible.  We’re in the Bible.  And I’ve translated what it means.  Our name.  It means “He Who Wears Clean Garments.”

-He who wears…

-Oh no look, this is my stop. Wow, so yeah it was so great meeting you!  What did you say your first name was again?


-Ray! That’s my middle name!

-Nah no shit!

-It was great meeting you Ray! Have a great day!

-Yeah right on…same middle name…damn…okay take care!
