Welcome to the desert of the real
I found a copy of Baudrillard’s Simulations at a flea market in West Philadelphia.
Me: “How much?”
Him: “50 cents?”
Me (giving him $1): “I could make any number of jokes ….. you could give me two tokens back rather than actual quarters.”
Him: “You want two tokens? I can give you two tokens I’m never gonna use–”
Me: “I live in Jersey.”
