H & manager are talking about random boring book shelve placings when aforementioned customer walks up & looks eagerly in their direction
manager: "may i help you sir?"
blarg customer: "i'd like to talk to her" points at H
H: "how can i help you sir?"
blarg customer: "i don't want you to take offense, but can i ask you a question?"
H: "okay? i won't take offense depending on what kind of question you ask me!"
manager: looks on with interest at the scene that is unfolding before him
blarg customer: "i have talked to you many times before & you seem to be a reasonably intelligent person, also rather attractive & i have seen that you have had many different piercings through your eyebrow & tongue, so why do you do that to yourself?!" points at H's vertical labret piercing
H: *chuckles to hirself & takes a closer look at the customer, comes to the decision that ze has never seen him before in hir life* "well sir i must tell you that i have never had a eyebrow or tongue piercing, because i don't find either attractive & as for why i do this to myself, well i do it because i enjoy it!!"
blarg customer: stares back expecting more of an argument and/or detailed explantation of maybe a spiritual, satanitc or BDSM-related meaning to the terrible piece of metal through H's lip
H: stares back with a sly grin across hir mutilated & vertically pierced lips
blarg customer: loses staring contest & walks away
H: "have a nice night sir!!"
manager: "what the hell was that all about?!"
H: "i have NO idea & welcome to my life"
H & manager go back to talking about random boring shelf placements
*teehee* entertaining eh?
