A couple weekends ago, I stopped in the Plaza Barnes & Noble to buy The Great Derangement, the latest book by Rolling Stone political columnist Matt Taibbi. I found the book on display on the second floor, and when I flipped open the top copy, a neatly folded note fell out.
I naively looked around in the midst of a Neo moment. Delusions of grandeur -- and my self-centered nature -- made me believe the note was for me. I looked over my shoulder and sheepishly peeked at the flowery stationery.
Alas, I am not “The One.” The note was for a “very handsome” man who had “made eyes” with someone on the bookstore's second floor on May 25. Damn.
Click on the note for a readable version, Neo.
