That’s why community bookstores are better. No one is a phrase away from calling Wimpy Kid a pussy.
Yes indeed. I felt like I found out that Naimond’s mother (The Wire? Right? Mother of the Year? Sample Mother of the Year quote: “You scared of going to baby-booking? You bitch.”) was giving us her take on the Wimpy Kid.
Wow! I have a semi-related story:
I went to BN to buy something for my bookclub. Once I finished, the cashier said to me instead of thank you, “Stay focused.”
I gave a puzzled look and walked out with a smile.
BN is an odd place sometimes.
Yikes. I’ll take a community bookstore staffed by people who care about their books, or (heaven help me) an online bookstore where no one has opinions about anything. I don’t need to hear Beavis and Butthead’s take on children’s literature.
