McNeil's Encounter with a Young Clerk

McNeil asked a young clerk where to find the Spirograph. "He pretended he had heard of it, stared off into space with eyes full of wonder before I just told him I'd keep looking...for happiness!!! Anyway, I ended up picking up a Magna Doodle, which is a flimsy piece of plastic covering some metal shavings somebody swept off the floor of a machine shop," writes a disgruntled McNeil.
