Jest, 1/8th Read
tag # 000590
LM and my sister Marnie used to have a running joke about
my reading habits or lack there of. The joke would go "John
have you ever read (insert best selling book by best selling
author)" And my response would be.
"You know, you could save yourself a few syllables if
you just asked me "have your ever read?" b/c the answer
will be the same. "No" "
Well I borrowed this book from Marnie 3 years ago this month
and it is still far from read.. It did however travel with me
everywhere I've been, including Utah, Oregon, Vancouver, Sweden,
Norway, California, New York City, Austin, Memphis, Atlanta,
Nachez, MS, Las Vegas, and even Iowa City, Iowa... All with
the hopes of being read.
May be you can read it an send it back to my sister when you
are done. At least she would get it back then. It weighs slightly
less than the OED that I sold last month.
