Xmas shopping story

While at the Borders on La Cienega I saw a book called, "Historic Photos of Anaheim." Discounted, if you can imagine. And it reminds me of the time I went to a wedding at a fancy country club in Westchester and, being early, killed some time looking at the books in their library, or gun room, or whatever the fuck it was, until I came upon the title, "Waggish Tales of the Czechs."

Now I feel compelled to Google "Waggish Tales of the Czechs," and it turns out to be a fake title for a volume of "smoking room jests or stories" . So I guess that room in that Westchester country club was the smoking room.
