me: (sorting through a pile of books at a yard sale) wow, this book is huge!
yard owner: yeah, it is huge. My kids liked that book when they were in school. They thought it was fun. It helped them learn history.
me: Oh! This is a history book?
yard owner: yes, but it is done so that the history events look like newspaper articles. It is full of pictures and catchy headlines!
me: This book is huge though!
yard owner: well, it covers all of world history even into ancient times! Look, it even has headlines from what might have happened 10,000 years ago!
yard owner: (suddenly pauses and looks at me for fear that he may have offended me)
yard owner: 10,000 years ago .. uh… .unless you love Jesus.
me: (laughing until nearly wetting myself)
It was the best laugh I have had all week. I am sure he thought I was mad. I bought the book.
