Naked

Standing in line at Shakespeare & Co., I noticed Naked by David Sedaris. I took it off the shelf and began to read. When it was my turn to give my list of textbooks to the man behind the counter, I put the book I already had on the counter.
There are two guys at Hunter I always confuse. One is a socialist and the other might be as well. I'm not sure which is which, though. One of them was standing next to me while we waited for our books. He turned to me and smiled and I smiled back because I realized that he either must've just started using deodorant or it was just early in the day. He got his books and left.
Another guy came to take his place at my left.
"Naked."
"Oh, have you read it?" I asked.
"No. Have you?"
"No."
"So, what made you want to buy it?"
"I read Me Talk Pretty One Day by the same author and thought it was hilarious."
He had nothing to say. Once given his books, he walked away. My books were still being looked for.
Two girls came up next to me to get their books.
"Oh, Naked--that's such a funny book!" One said to me.
"Have you read it?"
"No, I didn't. But there was a passage in one of my reading books for a class."
They left to pay for the books while I stood there waiting. I had the slowest helper.

Here's a tip for you: If you ever see me standing in line, get oin another line. I am for whatever reason always attracted to the slow line. It seems to be my curse.

On another note, I never read Naked. But I've seen nakes people. Does that count?

Whoa. I have that book sitting in my shelf. Got it one day at a book sale; never read it [yet]. -Zoe
