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

– “The Boy in the Bubble” by Paul Simon

  1. oh wow, yeah, it is mighty cramped in there, make a sharp turn or sudden movement and it could be your demise. When you first told me about this I thought it was a random person, but when you say it’s an employee it makes a bit more sense, but it is, like you say, a wonder… 😉

  2. I say this should be added as a new sport to the Olympics. Sounds quite challenging and stupid like the curling event.

  3. Tara: Heh, it’d probably be even more awesome if a total stranger was carrying around a big ladder. But alas, it was the pixie…

    D: Ohh, good idea! Can we also submit a cake-eating event?

  5. Imagine being the only male employee in the store and getting the job of changing light bulbs while customers walk all around you, the ladder, and the very fragile 9yet freakishly strong) fluorescent bulbs.

  7. Monica: Mmm, yes! And you guys get a very nice, long break too. Lucky duck!

    TK: Did you use to work at a B&N, good sir?

    Bitsy: He did, but I can’t blame him. I look dang good in those hoodies…
