I grab a Starbucks (a Seattle company, fyi) and settle down in a chair with my stack of magazines. A chick with pink hair and a Pearl Jam beanie sits next to me. I hate Pearl Jam, but I enjoy any opportunity to talk rock. We become fast friends.
She tells me about how she's traveled all over and been to, like, a thousand Pearl Jam concerts. I'm thinking in my head, "you're weird." While she's talking, I notice the familiar intro of 'No Excuses' playing through the speakers and at that moment, it could not have been a more perfect ending to an amazing vacation.
