"It has a pink cover"
Overheard today at Borders.
Them--played by 4 young teenagers that I pegged for jr. high when they walked in; 2 boys and 2 girls, one girl is the main speaker
Her--the sales clerk at the info computer
Them: I'm looking for a book called "Romeo and Juliet?" [Yes, it really was a question.]
Her: Are you looking for the play?
Them: I don't know, but it has a pink cover.
I hear the gears grinding in Her's brain as she ponders how to respond to Them.
Her: 9th grade English?
Them: yes...I looked it up and it has a pink cover.
Her: Let's look it up...is this it? The play by Shakespeare?
Them: Yeah, that's it. That's the one with the pink cover.
Poor teacher. She'll never know what hit her when classes start on Tuesday.
