The Don’t Ask And Don’t Tell Of Reading Habits

| Working | February 5, 2015

(I often read while waiting to clock in at work, and eventually, a coworker or manager asks what I’m reading.)

Assistant Manager: “What are you reading?”

Me:Christopher and His Kind.”

Assistant Manager: “What’s it about?”

Me: “A guy who goes to Berlin in the late 20s and 30s and has a lot of gay sex.”

Assistant Manager: “…what?”

Me: “It’s about a guy who goes to Berlin in the late 20s and 30s and has a lot of gay sex.”

Assistant Manager: “Oh, sounds fun.”

Me: “It’s actually slow reading. I’m on in 10 minutes.”
