so, tonight i was bartending and one of my favorite regulars, A.J., came in and sat down.
as i poured him his usual--a bud and a shot of jager--he said hey tiffany, did you hear about the new o.j. simpson book?'
i hadn't heard of any such thing, so i said 'no.'
he said, 'yeah, i guess it's coming out next week. it's called If Did It This is How it Happened.'
i laughed and went away to pour another drink or something.
a few minutes later, i was flipping through the newspaper and i saw an article about a new oj simpson book.
a new oj simpson book called If I Did it This is How it Happened.
when A.J. told me about the book, I THOUGHT HE WAS KIDDING.
what part of someone walking into a bar and telling you that o.j. simpson wrote a book called 'if i did it this is how it happened' doesn't sound like a joke?
i seriously CANNOT believe this book is being published and will soon be putting money in the pocket of this man.
i think i will probably have more to say about this later, but for now i'm just going to take a deep breath and shake my head in despair as i think about the really dark and despicable side of humanity that this man--who has written a 'hypothetical' book about how he murdered the mother of his children--is so proudly representing.
that sound you hear?
it's me sighing.
