    The Twilight Of Our Literacy, Part 4

    | Edmonton, AB, Canada | Top

    (The customer is a middle-aged male, wearing a tweed jacket and thick glasses. He’s buying all of the ‘Twilight’ books.)

    Me: “Did you find everything you were looking for?”

    Customer: “Yes, unfortunately. I’m really not looking forward to reading these.”

    Me: “Oh, why not?”

    Customer: “Well, I’m an English professor. Every time I reference low forms of literature, I always use Twilight as the example. Today a student asked if I’ve actually read them, and I had to say no. They demanded that I do.”

    (He hangs his head in shame.)
