A man buys a book.

A man wearing a blue boiler suit enters the shop.

He paces the floor and looks at the shelves before approaching me.

I'm sorry I missed your talk in West Norwood, he says.

I didn't talk in West Norwood, I tell him.

You didn't?

No, I didn't, I tell him.

You didn't do a presentation about the explosion of creativity amongst the unemployed?

No, I'm sorry, I didn't, I say.

So your name's not Mark then?

No, sorry, I tell him, my name isn't Mark.

He shakes his head.

Anyway, he says, I must be going. I must be moving along.

Jon, see, you should branch out. Do those self help courses and speeches and things and become a rich guru. : )

Merry Christmas
