Random Giggling Maniac: "Do you have a book with a Pokey Man on it?"
Me: "We might not right now. They're very popular."
RGM: "I just need to know what one looks like."
Me: "Well, there's hundreds of them. You'll have to decide which one you want to draw."
RGM: "I want to draw The Pokey Man. The one all the kids are trying to catch."
Me: "There isn't One. There are hundreds of them, and they look different, like animals look different."
RGM: "But they all look like bugs or something?"
Me: "Some look like mice. Some look like ducks. Some look like pigeons. Some look like dinosaurs. They run the gambit."
RGM: "But the one people want."
Me: "There isn't one. There are many. You'll have to Google them and pick one."
RGM: "Aren't they all ghosts?"
RGM: "What do they look like?"
Me: "You're right. Ghosts."
RGM: "Do you have any cardboard? I'm going to make a sign that says 'Pokemon Walker' to give the kids a laugh."
I hand him some cardboard.
RGM: "Are Pokey mons red or blue?"
Me: "They're striped. Like zebra. Like zebra ghosts."
RGM spends about ten minutes vigorously doing Something with markers on the cardboard. I am expecting some sort of exotically weird looking ghost zebra, but when he shows me the sign, it's just a child scrawl "Pokemon Walker" where "Pokemon" is actually spelled correctly with the proper accent, even, and then the word "Walker" is underlined multiple times. Despite him taking out several markers, it's all in black Sharpie.
RGM: "I"m going to bring some smiles to some kids today."
