An actual thing that actually happened to me at work today.
One of my customers and I were discussing the Sherlock Holmes books in the bookstore, which led to a discussion of the BBC show, and he mentioned his teenage daughter loves it too. “Oh, and she goes on Tumblr,” he said. “Do you know about this thing called shipping? And what is a johnlock?”
I was like,
"Tell her to stop by sometime because we have mutual relevant interests."
Really I wanted to say:
OMG I KNOW THAT FEEL
FANGIRLING IN REAL LIFE
This is the best fandom ever.
