    wordbrooklyn:

    Customer: Did you used to work at Powell’s, or do you just have a t-shirt?
    Jenn: I just have a t-shirt! Because it’s a great bookstore.
    Customer: Definitely, I have one too.
    Jenn: And they have a really good tumblr. Do you know about tumblr?
    Customer: I do! I just got back from a road trip actually, from Montana to here, with elk antlers, that I documented on there.

    We would read that blog!
