    Caesar 2: The [Roman] Empire Strikes Back

    | Connecticut, USA | Books & Reading

    Customer: “Do you carry books by Shakespeare here?”

    Me: “Yes, we do. Which play did you need?”

    Customer: “The one that sophomores read.” *gestures to the teenager next to her, presumably her daughter*

    Me: “I’m sorry, but there’s not just one play that sophomores read. Do you happen to know the title, or maybe what it’s about?”

    Customer: *loudly* “The-One-That-Sophomore’s-Read!”

    Me: “Well, let’s walk over to the section and see if we can figure it out. A lot of early high school students read A Midsummer Night’s Dream or Romeo & Juliet.”

    Daughter: “I think Romeo & Juliet.”

    Me: “Great!” *pulls out a copy to hand to her*

    Daughter: “I don’t know though.”

    Me: “Okay. Well, could it be Hamlet, maybe? Or Julius Caesar?”

    Daughter:Julius Caesar? Isn’t that the sequel to Romeo & Juliet?”
