I Bought The Help at Walmart

The Help.  It's a very hyped book and movie.  It's got mass appeal.  It's not the kind of book I'd pick up.  I mean, I have EM Forster's Maurice in my purse and I'm re-reading Sputnik Sweetheart in the vague hope that I'll finally understand it.

I don't read mass appeal books. 

But there I was at Walmart, staring at a pile of these books, and I thought, "You know, if there was a place to buy this book, it's here."  And I picked it up.  I didn't even feel embarrassed when I got to the cash.  It was all OK.  I was buying a book.  At Walmart. 

I also bought my favourite recycled toilet paper.
