You know how sometimes you walk away from a conversation and then you think of the perfect thing that you wish you'd said?
Admittedly, with me, I more more likely to walk away wishing I hadn't said whatever it was that fell out of my mouth. (Just one example chosen from myriad.) Oh, here's another. And crap, possibly my favorite one, where there are not just words, but actions involved.
But sometimes, sometimes I have the ideal response...just a few minutes or hours too late.
So, along those lines, I woke up this morning thinking, oh, here's how I wish I'd ended yesterday's post: It might be time to pull out the Dickens. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...
I told that to Nick. He agreed. We talked about being hard core Dickens fans. That Dickens, he's deep. And so on and so forth.
We think we're funnier than we are, I know, I know.
I knew people in college who had their preferred sex music - particular albums or mixes they'd play.
Then I got started thinking, wouldn't it be funny to compile a reading list? Books to have sex to?
So I've been trying to compile a book list for the 3-5-times-a-week-task that lies ahead of me. It's a hard project (no pun). I asked my friend Kaysha for help, and here's what we've got so far...
Deadeye Dick - Kurt Vonnegut
The Sound and the Fury - William Faulkner
The Sun Also Rises - Ernest Hemingway
The Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
As I Lay Dying - William Faulkner
Of Human Bondage - W. Somerset Maugham
Anything by Balzac
I know for a fact that you all are an extremely clever crowd that loves books. Any suggestions?
