Quote of the Week: Skeezy-Eyed
A surprising number of people have asked INTERN ["Soooooo, where can I get a copy of your book?" while meaningfully eyeing the stack of review copies on her desk] since her book was published, and they always act surprised when she tells them they can find it in, you know, bookstores. Why is this surprising? If INTERN were a barber, would people look at her all skeezy-eyed and ask, "Soooooo, where can I get my beard trimmed?"
--The Intern, on the delicate subject of asking an author-acquaintance for a free copy of her book.
