Reminds me of my favourite essay of all time, George Orwell’s Bookshop Memories:
Many of the people who came to us were of the kind who would be a nuisance anywhere but have special opportunities in a bookshop. For example, the dear old lady who ‘wants a book for an invalid’ (a very common demand, that), and the other dear old lady who read such a nice book in 1897 and wonders whether you can find her a copy. Unfortunately she doesn’t remember the title or the author’s name or what the book was about, but she does remember that it had a red cover.

I just want to make sure the people reblogging and quoting this know that it’s basically gibberish? Like, this doesn’t make sense. It’s words strung together in a way to make them sound important, but actually mean nothing.
K, just making sure!
