A fun day at work

“Ma’am, are these comic books 50 cents?” said the woman, pointing to the box of comic books with a giant sign on it reading: “50 Cent Comic Books.”

“Yes, they are,” I replied.

"Also, maybe don't breathe under the water, okay?"

“Also, maybe don’t breathe under the water, okay?”

After letting her 5- or 6-year-old son pick out a couple of comic books from the box of 50 Cent Comic Books, she brought them to the counter.

“Just so you know,” I said, “These are pretty mature books. Is it all right with you if he has them?”

“Oh, it’s not like he’ll read them, anyway,” she said.

“Comic books have pictures too,” I decided not to say.

"And I'm sure every picture in the comic book will be perfectly appropriate for a child of your son's age."
