Meeting a piece of history…

Customer walks into the store, has a big dent in his forehead.  Buys a book, but I have to ask him about it.

He says, “Hilton Hotel, 5th of September, 1975.  12:18pm”

They never replaced the damaged skull on him, hence the dent (you could see it pulse a bit).  But he certainly seemed none the worse for wear.  Nice fellow, to think I was 2 when that happened to him.

Interesting to have a piece of history walk into your store like that.
