My First Novel

One day last week I ordered new carpet for the room that suffered damage from our recent water leak here at Doright Manor. The saleswoman who helped me decide on a pattern came out to the house to measure the area to be carpeted and talked me into also buying carpet for the two adjacent rooms. She was quite good at her job.

We chatted as she measured and eventually she asked what I did with my free time. I told her I’d recently finished my first novel. She looked at me kind of funny, so I elaborated, saying I one day realized I’d written 100,000 words.

“Oh,” she said. “I thought you meant you’d finished reading your first novel.”

We laughed, but then I wondered if I needed to upgrade my image. Surely I don’t look like a non-reader. Right?

Sort of relative cartoon.

Peace, people!
