"Pride and Prejudice, huh?" The librarian ran the spine of the red book against the metal de-magnetizer.

"Yeah, I'm reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and want to be able to fully appreciate it, so I'm reading this first."

"Zombies? I haven't heard of it."

"Yeah, it just came out a month ago." I smiled at him. He placidly glanced at his computer screen then handed me the book back.

"Huh. Enjoy your book."

And that's when I felt embarrassed.

"I smiled at him."

That's my favorite part.

Let me know what you think of Pride and Prejudice. I'm doing a research project on that one this semester.

So, um, are you actually reading the Zombies one? What's it like, out of (quite literally) morbid curiosity?

Oh, Matthew. I wish I could have been a spectator to this interaction.
