A sports story

A couple of days ago, I went to a soccer game. At the entrance to the stadium, several security guards stood, checking attendees and their bags. My security guard took my bag and checked it inside out. After a moment, my bag was handed back to me and the guard asked, "Is it good?" Confused, I looked at my bag again and noticed the book sticking out. "My mom got that one but she hasn't read it yet," the guard continued. "How are you liking it?"

I smiled suddenly, understanding the question. "It's fun so far," I said. As I walked away, I added, "I hope she enjoys it."

(I definitely enjoyed the book more than the disappointing game. My team lost. Again.)
