Tonight’s amusing conversation with the Handsome Marketboy

So there I am stopping by my marketboys on the way home for my evening round of tasty!fruit when I find that my favorite Handsome Marketboy has the stand all to himself. Hurray, I’m thinking, as he says hi and asks me how my day has gone.

I tell him I have to work tonight but a nice man is about to sell me blackberries and an avocado, so hey! And he asks me what I do with all the money.

Buy books, mostly, I say–because as you know, my children, some women buy purses or shoes, but me, I buy books!

Handsome Marketboy looks a bit boggled and asks, have I not heard of the library? It’s like Netflix, only for books! I explain that I want to Own All of the Books, because this man clearly has no conception of how much I read. I am, obviously, going to have to explain this to him. ;)

(After, of course, I buy All of the Blackberries. Because nom.)

  1. No, no. It’s “…Own ALL the Books!” Envision that with a Hyperbole-and-a-Half style illustration.

    1. HEE, it’s either that, or else my Chibi Anna Mii, who is the tiniest possible Mii with a sticky-outty tiny ponytail behind her ENORMOUS HEAD, carrying around a stack of paperbacks three times her height. And the Nook on top. And an iPad. :D

  2. While I agree that I full-heartedly support my local library when I can, there are some books that are worth buying.
