In one of the books I read recently, the narrator has a line about how she always carries a book with her in case she has to “queue unexpectedly.” How very British. And that’s pretty much exactly why I always have a book with me wherever I go, except I’m sure I would have phrased it differently had anyone asked (not being at all British myself, obviously).  I’d love to try it out, but since no one has ever asked me in my three-decades-long reading career so far, I don’t expect them to start now.

    Susannah, why do you always carry a book with you?

    Why, in case I have to queue unexpectedly, of course. Thank you for asking. I knew I could count on you.

    But of course!
