Ladder Through a Barnes & Noble

with 7 comments

No kids, bookshelves, or orders of tall caramel frappachinos (with whipped cream!) were harmed as she side-snaked her way out from the cafe to the front entrance. With a ladder. A ladder through the FRONT ENTRANCE. Ever see how crammed those places are, what with their towers of books on French gourmet or the types of tanks used specifically in World War II? Sometimes if there’s just a single person in there staring intently at the racks of bargain books I have to suck in my gut just to skim by. Crazy, people. Absolutely crazy. How a ladder got through is still impossible for my brain to compute. Let’s just chalk this up as one wonder of the world…

It’s a turn-around jump shot
It’s everybody jump start
It’s every generation throws a hero up the pop charts
Medicine is magical and magical is art
The boy in the bubble
And the baby with the baboon heart
