city_of_dis in book_reviews:

Fun games can ensue whilst strolling these aisles: Often customers and clerks alike have been foolish enough to approach me and say something to the order of; "Aren't you a bit young to have children who are reading?"


For a time, my response was to give them a lecture about children’s' literature and its appeal/impact on all ages, and that it prevents me from growing up into someone as oblivious as themselves. After a few such occurrences, my frustration mutated into an all-encompassing malevolence and recently, I have replaced the lecture with; "Oh, kids are smarter these days so I had to stop using candy and lure them into the car with BOOKS!"
