Ok, so I’m telling a story about why everyone should admire JJ Leroy:
Three years ago, @gaygay-style and I were at a Starbucks. When asked for his name to put on his cup, he said- and I’m not kidding- “24601.” The employee gave him a strange look, and so did I, but all he said when I asked about it was, “You’ll see.”
So we’re waiting for our drinks, and mine is called (I just say my name is Ji, because I have never met a Westerner- including my own fiance- who has said my first name correctly on the first try), so I go up to get it, when the barista who has JJ’s order says, confused, “24601?”
JJ just stands up, and loudly sings- “My name is Jean Valjean!”
And then the barista grins and sings- “ And I’m Javert! Do not forget my name! Do not forget me! 24601!”
I was in hysterics for about ten minutes. It was amazing.
…If you don’t get it, watch Les Miserables. Or…just watch Les Miserables anyway.
