Student: “Hey Mr. C. Did you get a chance to read The Watchmen yet?”
Me: “I looked through a copy the other night at Barns and Nobles and decided not to get a copy.
Student: “Awww why not. It’s really good.”
Me: “Honestly, it has too many pictures for me.”
Needless to say the student found this amusing and so did the other faculty in the theology office. I never thought I would not read a book because it had “too many” pictures. I mean, isn’t this what people are supposed to want in a reading experience? Nahh. I think I’ll just stick with my imagination.
