Quote of the day

My husband to young assistant in bookshop: "Have you got a Penguin section?"

Assistant: "Have you tried under Pets?"

That's brilliant. Really made me smile!

Old Kitty said...



At least she got the "p" right. She could have said try the "natural world" section!

Take care

Amazingly Sandra, no it's not an April Fool's! Totally genuine, I promise. Made us despair a little over the state of bookshops nowadays though. x
