And The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen

In regards to people who INTERRUPT YOU WHILE YOU'RE READING...

As for the Interfering Idiots, just wait a nice, long stretch after they speak (just enough that they're about to repeat the question), then look up with a bright smile and say, "Oh, I'm sorry, did you say something? I was just so absorbed in my book. It's wonderful!" Brighten the smile just enough that they know they're dealing with an Insane Bibliophile and go back to reading. Ignore all future conversational attempts, unless it's something like, "Your hair's on fire!" That's an important one. *nods solemnly*
