Huh? [Aug. 29th, 2006|03:44 pm]
International Bon Vivant and Raconteur
My seventy-year-old landlord just asked me what the difference between fiction and nonfiction is. He'd never understood the terms before. I did my best to explain that fiction is made up stories and nonfiction is real stuff, and after repeating my words back to me a few times he promised to commit it to memory. I'm still shaking my head in amazement that someone can live seventy years in an entertainment-based society like ours and not know what fiction and nonfiction mean.
