On the USAir shuttle today, a girl of about 15 was seated across the aisle from her mom. The girl had a Danielle Steel novel.
At the end of the flight:
MOM: How did you like the book I lent you?
DAUGHTER: I didn’t really read it.
MOM: Oh, why not?
DAUGHTER: Because the writing was really bad, mom! She’s a bad writer! Good writing makes a story better!
