A man approaches the front counter with an ice cream cone and asks for a copy of Lunch With Buddha by Roland Merullo-

bookseller-sure we have that, it’s one of Marilyn’s favorite books

customer with ice cream cone- I know, she just told me about it.

bookseller- Just now? (Marilyn isn’t in the store)

customer with ice cream cone-  I just bumped into her over at J. P. Licks

Is it okay to reblog your self on tumblr? we just love this story about Marilyn hand selling books in line for ice cream at J. P. Licks.
