She said, "Dont touch it," and I asked, "What is it?"
"It's glue," she said. "Special glue. Superglue."
And I asked: "What did you buy that for?"
"Because I need it," she said. "I've got lots of things to glue together."
"There's nothing that needs gluing together," I snapped. "I can't understand why you buy all this crap."
"The same reason I married you," she shot back, "to kill time."
- "Crazy Glue" by Etgar Keret
While I was at the bookstore buying this book, I heard a little girl voice say, "What is that?"
"An atlas of the United States of America," a man voice answered. "If you'd like to look at it, sit down and I will put it in your lap."
"I don't want to."
"I don't understand you today. You keep asking for one thing and then changing your mind. This has got to stop."
