Oh, grow up!
If I had been in a bad mood, then I would've said what I wanted to say to the woman in the airport reading the "Harry Potter" book (don't ask me which one).
"Have you read this?" she queried. No, I responded. Here's what I wanted to say: "No ... I'm an adult. I'm not really interested in teenage wizards anymore."
Adults who proudly read children's books worry me, but they're not alone. We're being overrun by overgrown kids, like the 40-year-old on the plane who couldn't take his eyes off a video game. Now I half expect to see grown-ups reading Highlights magazine in the dentist's office.
