Overheads and Overheards

In line at the pharmacy behind a tan-skinned young man (dressed as a punk rocker, if it matters)

"I'm looking for lesion cream."
"Skin lesions?"
"We have (trumpets blaring through medical terminology in my head)."
"Can I use it on large areas? Like, say, my shoulders?"
"I... are you trying to lighten your skin?"
"Like Michael Jackson?"
"Pretty much."

... and she sold it to him anyway.
