While walking toward the bar, I passed a Barnes & Noble. I'd been looking for a 2011 datebook, and since I had the time, I figured I'd stop in and see what they had in stock. I'd never been to this particular Barnes & Noble before, and I took a wrong turn on my way to the calendars. Pretty soon I found myself in the "Teen Paranormal Romance" section. I was immediately approached by a Lubavitcher lady, intent on Jewing me up.
Transcript of our conversation (as told to sabotabby):
HER: Can I ask you a question?
HER: Are you Jewish?
HER: Do you need a menorah?
HER: Have you lit the menorah?
ME: Not tonight.
HER: Do you need candles?
HER: Oh, well can I give you [some religious tract -- I forget what it was called]?
HER: How about [something featuring the word "Moshiach"]?
HER: A [some other piece of religious dreck], then?
HER: Oh, well, OK.
I can't decide which I think is more odd: That there is such a thing as the "Teen Paranormal Romance" section, or that that's where the Lubavitcher ladies troll for converts.
