Reading...

Every other day I take my dad out to a bookstore. He buys me a coffee (yep, I'm a cheap date) and then we get a stack of books and magazines for him. We find a nice comfy chair, get him all settled and then I get to peruse all the books. I love a good bookstore!! Love love love one! The other day I decided to go light. I found a Baby Blues comic book and sat next to my dad, coffee in hand and preceeded to read. I got engrossed in my Great American Novel and started to giggle a little bit. When I realized what I was doing I looked up. There was a guy sitting a little ways away from me and he was staring. I smiled at him...just knowing he was a comic book fan like myself. He raised his eyebrows at my choice of reading material and then looked at his own. Man oh man...that guy needs some fun in his life. His book was a thick stuffy something or other about money. He was feeling superior. He knew, just by looking at my Baby Blues that he was better then me. I lifted my coffee cup in a sort of toast, smiled and then went back to reading...happily. I should've stuck my tongue out at him! That would've shown him who was more mature!!! hahahahahahahahaha There is always a time and a place for a good novel or a classic or a self help book...even a money matters book. But life is short. Grab a good comic and laugh out loud! You'll feel better for it. :)

Yeah for you! Inside he was just jealous that he didn't have the cojones to grab the copy of Archie and laugh out loud! People like that don't have a life and will probably die too early from stress! Drink up and laugh out loud Ya-Ya!
