Procrastinating my writing by way of typecasting...
These folks need a typewriter, clearly. Maybe you could set them up!
Why was it you didn't feel comfortable right off the bat? The other shop near me is more like a house, so it feels as though you are going through someone's attic. It's cool, but almost feels like you're somewhere you shouldn't be!
Partially, never having been there before and not sure what to expect. I wasn't sure if the owners would be snobby, overly talkative or what. I'm not the most well-read individual, so I was conscious of, after a few minutes of conversation, to have someone peg me as someone that shouldn't have been in a bookstore.I do this a lot...in my head.I had similar experience, as some of the store just felt like places I shouldn't be, yet it was clearly marked where I should stay out of and browse freely.
it's a subtle distinction, but when i get that feeling it's not that i don't belong but that they don't want me. that's how i feel about the entire city of seattle, even though i do enjoy whatever i'm there for at the time.
That's a good point and I think more accurate. Its not that I feel like I don't belong in a bookstore, but that "they" don't want me there.I never really thought of it that way, but I think you pegged the feeling I had.
