Versus

I was waiting in the lobby at the Superpower Clinic. There was one other guy sitting and and waiting. He had a faded baseball cap and a a little bit of a beer belly and a shirt that said "I'd rather push a Ford than drive a Chevy."


Ford versus Chevy?

Aren't they basically the same thing?

"Aren't they basically the same thing?" I asked him, indicating his T-shirt. He smiled knowingly and said that I just didn't know trucks if I needed to ask that question.

Then he pointed to my shirt, which was a black shirt declaring that ninjas must walk the plank, showing my allegiance to pirates, not ninjas.

"I don't get it," he said. "What do pirates have to do with ninjas?"

"I guess some people are Ford vs. Chevy people and some people are Pirate vs. Ninja people," I said. He agreed with a laugh.

We'd found our common grounds, when a guy, much younger than either of us, walked in. He had a Mohawk haircut and a pair of grey and white urban camouflage pants. His headphones were playing MC Hawking, a novelty hip-hop band, but his T-shirt featured MC Frontalot, a different novelty hip-hop band. He clearly had great inner turmoil.

We all agreed, while waiting in our lobby for superpowers, that it's important to choose your battle wisely.
