But, something posted at Dear Author got me thinking.
When I see a complete stranger in a bookstore looking at a book that personal experience tells me is a wallbanger, I've always wanted to say something to the effect of:
Put down the book, step back, now slowly walk away, no, no, no run, run as fast as you can.
Wallbanger Alert***Wallbanger Alert
I once asked on the RT Readers Board if you wanted to post a comment to the effect of "Don't do it, it'll be a complete waste of your time." Of course, there were people who were horrified that I would want to say something so mean,they didn't realize I was being sarcastically tongue-in-cheek.
Maybe I shouldn't be so shocked when my son comes out with his rude comments, maybe he takes after dear old mom.
Have you ever been tempted to warn a complete stranger "Don't do it, it'll be a complete waste of your time"?
