Don’t You Ever Interrupt Me While I’m Reading a Book!
This has me in stitches today at work!
…via The New Yorker:
“Ever notice the invisible barrier that encompasses a reader locked in concentration? It kind of puts a shield of tranquility around that person, or, rather, a tacit “Do Not Disturb” sign. Julian Smith, a director and YouTuber extraordinaire, puts it more bluntly: “Don’t you eva interrupt me while I’m reading a book!” My favorite part of the video is when he steals a book “at a stupid birthday party for some stupid kid.” Consider this a warning to anyone who ever thought “What are you reading?” was a great pickup line.”
