BJ'S BLOG 01/10/13 "Tales From the Reading Room"
If you have a problem, and no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can...wait, that’s the beginning of THE A-TEAM. Sorry about that. I was supposed to be talking about GROUP THERAPY.
(Maybe Mr. T is available, though. We should look into that. I’m sure he’d fit right in around here. We have a couple of fools who definitely need some pity. You know who I’m talking about…)
Let’s get on with Rock-A-Holics helping Rock-A-Holics! I love it when a plan comes together.
Jeremy recently let a friend borrow his copy of Life Of Pi. Not the movie – an actual book! No pictures! All words! Obviously, Jeremy is a pretty serious intellectual.
During a recent visit to the friend’s house, Jeremy saw his book…on the back of the toilet. I guess the good news is that he knows his friend is reading the book, but the choice of reading spot has Jeremy feeling like he deserves a replacement copy. His friend completely disagrees, and is refusing to buy him a new one.
I’m supporting Jeremy 100% on this one. We all know what happens in the bathroom, and that book has definitely been on the receiving end (that’s right, I said it) of countless bacterial incidents. Sharing the experience of a good book can be a great way for friends to bond, but I guess I’m that uptight kind of guy who doesn’t like sharing toilet juices with my book club pals.
