Highlights of The Day

Man comes in and wants to buy a typewriter. (Pencils has one!) A guy who wants a case for his girlfriend's Kindle. When I suggest a clip-on light, he shouts, "It's for my fuckin' girlfriend, the case is enough!" A woman who tells me she still uses "dial-up" and the grand prize winner was her friend whose teeth and gums were a shade of burnt siena. After the wave of nausea passed, I wanted to suggest she see a periodontist.


  1. great post. Pencils sounds like a place where the inmates are running the place. Reminicent of "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". Store manager = Nurse Rachet? More please !

  2. why would you suggest a clip on light -- the kindle lights up :\
