The Scene: Ikuni and I checking out at Target. Ikuni is purchasing the Harry Potter boxed set with new covers by Kazu Kibuishi.

Ikuni: I’ve read them many times!

Cashier: Really? How many?

Ikuni: That depends. I’ve read The Sorcerer’s Stone at least 40 times. Some of the others, though, just five to ten.

Cashier:  . . .
