Finding stuff on the wrong shelf
I went to the bookstore and picked up a copy of The Sketchnote Handbook, which I've wanted for a while to help round out my illustrative practices and to help me keep better notes. This is one of those more practical "self improvement" projects, along the lines of the Write Now course I took a few years ago to improve my handwriting. I went to Elliot Bay Bookstore, because I know I'd seen a copy of it there sometime ago.

After failing to find it in any of the sections where I had expected it, I asked at the help desk. The woman behind the desk said, "Oh, it's in the computers section."

She took me to the stand and and found it. After flipping through it for a moment, afraid I'd mis-identified it, I handed it to her and said, "This has nothing to do with computers. It's all about taking better notes in pen and ink."

She flipped through it as well, her brow furrowing deeper as she examined the contents. "You're right. It's completely mis-shelved. I'll check with our catalog."

I agreed that would be a good idea. "Well, that's my surrealism moment for the day." She laughed.
