Today I was at the local coffee shop

And there was an elderly man - he was at least 70 - sitting there alone, drinking his coffee, and he was reading


which is a YA vampire book (a pretty good, one, too, actually) and I felt such 




for this man I'd never met, who was sufficiently secure that he would read a YA vampire book in public.


I swear, I wanted to hug him. But that would be weird.


So, I didn't.


But it made my day.



(Also: is it weird that as I saw & felt all of this, I also was thinking 

"I can't wait to share this with my booklikes friends, because they will totally GET it?")
