Overheard On the Subway Today

“Yo,” the first twenty-something said to the other. “Audio books are like, how lazy do you have to be to listen to a book?”

I was dying to ask this guy why he was so angry at audio books. There was more going on with this opinion than just the surface comment. I was so curious! Maybe I only heard him quoting someone else? Maybe his mom hates audio books. Maybe he actually loves them so much he wants to marry them.

This right here is what I love about stories. Tell one part of it and you only see one angle. Hear a different part and you know something else. It’s the old Five Blind Men Describing An Elephant story. Geez I love that.
