Characters: vendor, me

I was meeting up with some people at a kind of outdoor street fair at night. There were a lot of different tents or areas roped off.
One of the newsworthy goings-on at this event was that you could get something called "onepork". I'm not sure what was so special about it, but only a couple of the vendors had it.
We went into one that seemed to have an entire pig roasted and cut up. (So if "onepork" was a vegetarian synthetic product, they were going rather extreme with the simulation.) I noticed that the entire pig seemed to have sauce and seasoning on it.
The vendor gave me a sample, and struck up a conversation.
vendor: "How do you like it?"
me: "It's...pretty good I suppose. It might be a better idea though if the entire pig weren't pre-seasoned, and you let people sort of self-determine how much sauce and stuff they'd add."
vendor: "That's not a bad idea. Hey, I think I've seen you...which hotel are you staying at?"
We discovered we actually were staying at the same hotel.
vendor: "Well I don't really know the area here, I just came for the demo. If you guys want to hang out later, let me know--here's my card."
He gave me one of the most unusual business cards I've ever seen. I kind of marveled at it, flipping it around. I noticed specifically that his web address was listed as one.now.com.
At time of writing, now.com looks up in my world to a Chinese language news site.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
