Fat Lady in Barnes & Noble

by xtx

I'm trying to read in a big overstuffed chair in a hidden corner in a gigantic Barnes & Noble. Next to me is a fat lady trying to get comfortable. She came in like a lion... with an avalanche of papers and books and bags. I tried the i'm staring / i'm not staring / i'm really reading thing with the book I was scanning and not planning on buying. She really was huge - I decided drinking in a long glance when her back was turned. She's probably happy that chair was wide.
