College-Aged Guy (urgently): Who is Nicholas Sparks?

Me: He's an author. Why?

College-Aged Guy: I'm talking to this girl and she said that he's her favorite author.

Me (with accidental, obvious distress): Oooooh.

College-Aged Guy: Why, what did he write?

Me: The Notebook, for one.

College-Aged Guy: OH GOD.

Me: Yeahhhh.

College-Aged Guy: Well, that means she'll be easy.

  4. Sigh. I get that about once a week.

    However, the make up for all of these, I found the most brilliant quote on the back of a book. This was part of the official blurb: "It's the kind of complex, action-oriented SF Dan Brown would write if Dan Brown could write." That gem came from The Guardian in their review of The Age of Zeus.
