The other day, I went

The other day, I went to the used book store and as I was browsing around in the art/design section, I happened upon a Dr. Ruth book: Your Complete Guide to Sexual Intimacy and Eroticism or some such nonsense. I picked it up and glanced at the price. $3. I opened it up to the cover page and there was Dr. Ruth’s signature. A signed copy of a Dr. Ruth book…for $3. I don’t really know if it’s worth any more than that, but I contemplated buying the book until my maleness kicked in and decided that there was no way I was going up to the counter with Dr. Ruth’s sexual advice tome in tow:

Yeah, I’d like this bookmark…this notepad…a copy of Time magazine….one of those book lights…and, um, this Dr. Ruth book. <looks at shoes, face turning crimson>
