Presented Without Comment

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.


  1. (don't hit me)

    It's funny because it's true.

  2. Ooooooooooh my gosh. Amazing.

  3. Well at least she didn't say her favorite book was 50 Shades of Grey. ;)

  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.

  5. Hahaha... I tried to read a Nicholas Sparks novel at a B&B this winter and had to give up after 2 chapters.

  6. Yeesh! Too funny. I tweeted this post!
