I love Richmond, Virginia. My favorite place to go is Cary Street, home of The Byrd Theatre, Plan 9 Records, Loose Screw Tattoo, One Eyed Jacques game shop, Heroes & Ghosts Tattoo, Penzey’s and of course Rocket Fizz Soda Pop And Candy Shop.
Rocket Fizz sells a ton of candy many of us remember from childhood: Mallow Cups, Zotz, Razzles, Bottle Caps, Blackjack Gum, those strips of paper with candy dots on them, as well as a bunch of weird Japanese candy (not weird because it’s Japanese…it’s weird and it’s Japanese).
They also sell stuff that ain’t candy: scarves, toys, posters, masks, t-shirts, knick knacks, and various novelties. And that’s where I found this:
I mean, I had to get one. It’s kind of a professional obligation. I keep meaning to wear it to class around Halloween, but I just haven’t done it yet. But the second I put this on, I promise I will post a pic.
