Overheard in the Bookshop

The scene is a very busy bookshop. A bepigtailed elderwoman protagonist approaches the information desk. She pauses for a moment and then asks…

“Excuse me, Religion is…?”

Her bearded interlocutor pauses for a moment and then replies….

“Religion is in the gold room, just up the stairs.”

He pauses once again, and then asks, “Or were you looking for a more esoteric answer?”

    Cute! A whole city block is a bit large for a ‘bookshop.’ Did you find anything you couldn’t resist taking home?

  2. John MacBrayne says

    Funny. I couldn’t help but think that if I had been the bearded interlocutor,I might have said….ROOM 101!
