Oh, the new stuff can cause so much confusion.
Overheard from a group of shoppers around our new table:
Girl 1: (points to a copy of Young Peoples History of the United States by Howard Zinn) Wow! this is interesting. Have you ever read Zinn?
Girl 2: Ehh, Zinn! Worst ever! I hated him. Some teacher made us read Zinn [sic] and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It was horrible!
Girl 1: What are you talking about?
Girl 2: What are you talking about?
(group of girls exchange confused and dismayed looks)
