it's all-american! the MICHIGAN! no, not the state. no, not the album by sufjan stevens (although i recommend you listen to it, because it's an awesome album).
i had never had a michigan. i know, right? nearly half a century living near the epicenter of the michigan (plattsburgh NY) and i'd never had one?
so i was over in battery park with time to kill between appointments and because ingress (of course) and it had been forever since i'd gotten anything at beansie's bus, which has been parked on that corner since before i can remember and what i DO remember about it is hot summer nights in my youth playing for the BURLINGTON CONCEERT BAND and the delicious smells of hot dogs and fries wafting across the lawn.
