And managed not to get gored by the horns.
So first, Godson is back to school and on his way to living a bit of a different life. Diet needs to change, there will probably be changes in pets and hopefully the mom is serious about the smoking. It's all I can ask at this time.
BIL - haven't heard but when hubby went to visit him in the hospital on Saturday he looked great and had quite the set up going. TV, internet, games and they bring him food. As my Godson said when he was in the hospital - "I get free food!"
Sleep is kicking my arse but then, what's new.
All that said, I didn't cave!!
You, my book loving pals will be happy to know I stood my ground.
BF: I've been reading lots of books lately.
Me: Uh, huh.
BF: Seriously, I'm reading a lot.
Me: You get a library card?
BF: *snort* I guess that means you won't be giving me any books?
Me: *looks at ceiling*
BF: What!? You aren't going to lend me books!?
Me: YOU'RE A BOOK MURDERER!!!!
Me: YOU KILL BOOKS!!
BF: Oh, come on, I'm not that bad.
Me: Yes, you are!
*sees newest book bought in a bag near my feet and grabs it*
Me: Look, this is how I hold a book when I'm reading. *shows her the two handed method of holding a book*
BF: *goes to pull book out of my hand*
Me: *hugs book to chest* NO!! You'll kill it!!
BF: I won't kill it, give it! *holds book up delicate like and opens it like I did* You're telling me you can read like this.
Me: Uh, YEA!
*grabs book back and shows her the one hand method of holding a book*
BF: OMG!! Are you kidding me!? I've never seen that!
Me: You don't hold a book in one hand?
BF: No! I -
Me: I know what you do, you grab each cover and rip the book apart!!
BF: I do not!
Me: Yes, you do! Book murderer!
Yes, we laughed through it but she didn't leave with any books. She was all 'I feel like shit now' and I said 'don't feel like shit, just borrow someone else's books!'
Yep, I like to pass the buck.
Hell, I think the library might ban her from borrowing if they saw how she handled books.
Poor man-handled pages.
The books will never be the same.
