That’s a Captain America T-Shirt

There’s a lot of really mundane, but funny, things that happen in Sihanouk Ville every day.   Most of these things are too inappropriate with an audience that includes my father, grandfather, and potential employers.

Last night, I was sitting at one of my favorite bars, Above Us Only Sky, with a Scottish “bloke” known in these parts as “Lovely Allen.”  He’s a peripheral character in the Tavie narrative, making guest appearances whenever I’m at Sky and sipping on a Mango Magic.  I complimented him on his shirt: “Nice.  Captain America.”

Lovely Allen: “Why does everyone keep sayin’ that?”

Tavie: “Dude, you’re wearing a Captain America shirt.”

Lovely Allen: “What are you talking about? I thought it was Converse.”

Tavie: “Hey, Ben! What’s on Allen’s shirt?”

Ben, being from Northern England, said in a nearly indecipherable accent, “Yeah, that’s a Captain America shirt, mate.  Cool shirt.”

Lovely Allen: “I can never wear this shirt again.”

For your reference, this is a Converse shirt:
