Another attempt at the new salesmanship technique Lisa is trying to teach me. Now I think of the used bookstore as a place of knowledge and learning where revolutionary ideas are born. I thought there is no reason I can’t combine the two.
A five year old little girl came into the shop a couple of days ago:
Me: What kind of books do you like?
Her: Do you have any books about princesses?
Me: You don't have to conform to the role a patriarchal society has forced on you. You can be anything you want, an explorer, a scientist, a ship’s captain or a pirate, a revolutionary woman who changes the world. I have several books in this area I can recommend.
Her: (after a moment of silence) Oh, well do you have anything about mermaids?
Me: (sigh) Sure right over here.
