Once upon a time many moons ago when Naruto was both new and cool, I owned a Konoha headband which I purchased on a whim. A friend’s birthday rolled around and we went to a bar to chitchat and have a few drinks. I was wearing my headband at the time, and as you might imagine particularly in a setting filled with inebriated individuals, eventually someone commented. A guy sitting near us struck up conversation by asking me what the symbol on my headband was.
“It means ‘leaf,’” I replied easily.
“Oh, wow. That’s pretty neat. What tribe is that from?”
I led this man on a merry chase. He thought I was Native American for whatever reason (likely the alcohol). My natural response was to just roll with it, so I did. His buddy became interested and was sucked into my story as well.
This was probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a bar.
