VAL GARLAND: Is it just me?

Strangers always strike up a conversation with me, even if my head is buried in a book or I have my 'frosty face' on. I am waiting outside OhNoGrunge for my car to Monique show and I have just been told 'The definition of love' by a passing man. Apparently, it's patience, something I am not very good at. It might have something to do with the book my head is buried in, 'The History Of Love' by Nicole Krauss, which of course is a bestseller on a lot of lists - I think I am over it already. At least he didn't give me a blow by blow of his latest operation...
