Given Timbuk -- "It's magic, damn it!"

When Given Timbuk #1 was displayed at Asheville BookWorks' 2009 BookOpolis show, I was pleasantly surprised by how many people contributed their own questions. Here's a scan of some of the slips that people dropped in the book -- I'll drop a page of them into the blog now and then.

Handwritten ones are from readers; printed ones are my own questions and 'answers' that I placed in the book before the show. (My answers aren't in response to specific questions -- just interesting snippets of conversation or quotations that I've picked up along the way. The world's answers to my unasked questions...)

I think my favorite answer from a reader so far has to be: "It's magic, damn it!"
