A strange conversation, recently overheard…
In a book store yet.
One woman to the other: I get fidgety if I sit too long.
The other agrees, says, yes, that she has friends who can read for hours;
she has no idea how they do it.
Another exchange, in the same shop, one that made more sense—
His answer: not enough.
Every day, he says, someone comes in and asks for something he doesn’t have.
We get that, right?
