two enthusiasms, two planets

Excited Patron: Do you have the second season of Game of Thrones? 

Me: Nope, but I can have it brought over from another library for you.

Excited Patron: Great, thanks, that's awesome, he says pounding the desk with his fist.  It's such a great show.  And I'm watching it with my best friend. Have you seen it?

Me: No, I haven't.  But I totally know how it feels to be caught up in a good series because I'm in the middle of Heartland.

Excited Patron: What's that?  I've never heard of it before.

Me: It's like a cowboy soap opera about a girl who heals horses.

Silence.  Well, silence plus a weird look plus he backed away from the desk like it was on fire.

Yep, I totally deserved that.
