Sweaty man scuttles up to the front desk.
SWEATY MAN: How much is that copy of The Mint in that display case?
JNADIGER: It's $74.95. Says here it's a first UK Edition.
SM: Let me see it.
JN: Since it's a pricey book, I'm going to hold it and show it TO you.
JN (inside his head): Particularly when you look like sketchy fucking weirdo.
SM: What? Fine. Show me inside the dust jacket. Show me that back page. Now let me smell it.
SM: Let me smell the book.
JN: *holds the book up to the guy's face.*
SM: No, no. If I can't handle the book AND smell it, I won't be buying it.
JN: Okay. Well. Better luck next time, then.
