A new guy is on the van today. He's very large and has a red, chinstrap beard. He's on his way into NYC for a job interview. His dad used to ride the Vanpool so he's carrying on a family tradition of sorts.
Conversation starts up about local area landmarks near his house.
"Yeah, my dad moved right by that llama farm in Boonton," he says.
"Oh, I used to live right by there," says the guy who sells parking garages for a living.
There's a pause.
"Hey, is llama fur anything like alpaca fur? Can you sell llama fur?"
"No, I don't think llama fur is worth anything."
