Chupa called Costco to see if they had a certain piece of luggage in stock at the Atwater warehouse.
“It may have been discontinued,” the customer service rep told him. “May I place you on a brief hold?”
Chupa listened to hold ads for a few minutes.
Suddenly he brightened.
“Costco has a giant shit cake!” he said to me. “Almost big enough for everyone to have seconds!”
Chupa and his friend Jonic spent the evening singing and jamming along to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You,” which requires a lot of falsetto and features the lyric, “everything I need's . . . between . . . those thighs.”
