“Come on Jimmy, it’s only a bookstore.”

“Dr. Adler, I know you are trying to help  me but this scares the devil out of me.”

“Just follow me into the store and we will start out just reading a sentence and go from there. How is that? We will just take it one book at a time. Let’s start with this one.”

“Ok”

“It was a dark and stormy night…”

“Please  Dr. Adler that’s scary.”

“Ok Jimmy let’s try this one,  “Call me Ishmael…..

“Yikes, Dr. Adler, let’s stay with books with English names.”

“How  about this one. “Many years later, as he faced the firing squad…..””

“Ahgg…no violence please.”

“One  more  Jimmy and then if you still exhibit these symptoms we will leave and start a new course of treatment. “Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins.””

“Please continue Dr. Adler.”

    How old is Jimmy? I hope he’s not a child. I never read the book, but I saw the movie. Apparently he’s a romantic. Well done, Danny. 🙂 — Suzanne

      Thanks! I wrote the post with Jimmy as a child. Not sure what book/movie you are referencing.
