It’s nice to know that after an annoying afternoon I can count on my sister to cheer me up with some book banter.
Me: What are you doing?
Sister: Trying to turn on the internet on this thing.
Me: The internet is on. That’s a Nook Simple Touch. The only internet you can get on is Barnes & Noble’s website.
Me: Because books are all I need it for.
Her: This is a nerd device. You’re wasting your life, sitting inside all day reading.
Me: A reader lives a thousand lives.
Her: A reader lives until they can’t see and die!
Me: Everyone lives until they can’t see and die!
Her: You’re just going to keep reading until your eyes fall out and roll on the floor! Then I’ll have to get you those books with the dots!
Me: That’s called braille. You’d know that if you read.
Her: *stares* I’m going outside to smoke.
I win this round, Jennifer.
