Episode 2

(overheard conversation near the register at Longfellow Books, next to the indie book section)

A middle-aged guy,with thinning hair manning the register frantically says, "Real quick, tell me what I need to do here. I can help you out. Do you have the book numbers?" A young girl, looking a bit frazzled, emptying a carton of books just rolls her eyes.

"Oh, this is a great read. You're gonna love it." He utters to the next customer, a mom dragging two kids.
"I'm getting it as a gift." She tells him and turns abruptly and leaves.

  15. Birdman, is store security watching you more closely these days, now that you are listening in on conversations? (Hey, who doesn't?) We await the next installment.

    Incidentally, my security word is "slypeep." Nuff said.
