A Highbrow Evening

Last week I was a guest at an independent bookstore that was holding a Teacher Appreciation Night. While sitting in my author chair, not too far from the cash register, I overheard a lengthy discussion about a picture book called Walter the Farting Dog by William Kotzwinkle and Glen Murray. Some women (teachers, because this was Teacher Appreciaton Night, and I believe the store was closed to everyone else) were just delighted with the thing, which the store owner said they had trouble keeping on the shelf.

One of the store employees suggested the women might like to consider another book called Farley Farts by Birte Muller and Marianne Martens. The bookseller even read portions of Farley aloud. It sounded pretty good to me.

However, the customer decided to buy Walter the Farting Dog instead of Farley Farts because she thought Walter was "more realistic." It's like they say, folks, you just can't make this stuff up.

Walter the Farting Dog is very famous.

This game is very interesting and as long as you know the Scions Of Fate gold you will love it and you will go to play this game every day. Instead in this game you will not complain it and you will only want to earn the SOF gold to make yourself become strong. sometimes you can also go to earn the Scions Of Fate money with your friends, because if you play the game with your friends you can be strong more easily. I know every player wants to get more and more cheap SOF gold to become strong. So you can buy sof gold and then you can equipment yourself with the weapons.
