No, I’m sewing buttons on pickles.

This is how I look when someone taps me on the shoulder and says, “Are you reading a book?”

Ask me for a rant on why people do that. When it comes to having an opinion, I’m full of it.

    Yup. That’s how I’d look too.

    Seriously, why do people do that?

    1. philangelus

      That’s a rant for another time. I have an idea…

  3. Ken Rolph

    At least they unchained you from the rings under the table before they took the photo.

      It’s hard to turn the pages with your hands cuffed to the furniture.

    BTW…would a better question be…what are you reading?

    1. philangelus

      Yes, that would be fine. Still annoying, but not necessarily a question the asker could have answered by thinking for .00005 seconds. Also fine would be “Are you enjoying that book?”

      1. Ken Rolph

        What about, “While you’re just sitting there reading can you come and help me with …”

          It might be annoying, but at least it’s not dumb. 😉
