I usually don’t rant – but I just had to do a rant post tonight. Every Sunday seems to be Saints party Sundays – that goes on forever because they SO ROCK! 12-0 baby. Well, living in the party lifestyle – that’s me Par-T girl – you tend to meet new people. Well today I met someone that certainly has to be one of the dullest crayons in the box that I have come across in awhile.
How did I find out her IQ points probably consisted of 2 digits? Well when we go on to fav TV shows – she mentioned hers was True Blood and when I asked if she read the book she looked at me stupidly. Ok, I could see that. But when I went on to say yeah, the vamp books to movie trend, like Twilight. Another blank stare and
“Twilight was a book too? Well it figures I wouldn’t know that since I haven’t ever finished a book in my life.” She states this like she is proud. I just never understand this, how someone can glory in the fact that they don’t read.
“I don’t have the time, maybe reading is something I’ll do when I get old.” she spoke up when the table looked at her like she was out of her mind, she’s 25, the group ranges from 30 – 40 yr olds. This also always cracks me up. It is the same way with working out, reading, or doing anything else that people normally give excuses for. Time. I betcha if people cut the television off they might have 2 to 3 hours a night.
So to all you book bloggers out there. Keep up the good work, keep on reading and keep on making it a cool thing to do. As Judge Judy said, “Beauty Fades, Dumb Is Forever”.
