Quote of the Day

“One of the drawbacks of working in a bookstore, something I did for many years, is that it can be like working in a small-town pharmacy.  You learn things about people you might rather not know.  What sort of face do you put on when your new girlfriend’s mother comes to the counter with a Newt Gingrich novel, a scented candle and a copy of ‘The Herpes Survival Guide’?”

Dwight Garner, Books of the Times, NYT

You put on your gotta-find-a-new-girlfriend face.

    Haha! My youngest child has been working part time at CVS, and they put him in the pharmacy. He said the same thing, “Mom, there is a LOT of information that I’d really rather not know!”
