Save me.....

If I could only take my eyes out, give them a nice warm bath, then a wonderful cooling massage with healing herbals, treat them to a long and restful nap and put them back in....I think it would feel sooooo good. I have been reading..... reading.... reading. I'm a reading fool. I turn into a snarling bitch when the phone rings or if somebody happens to come over because I want to get back to my BOOK. I am 500 pages into it (a little more than half way) and it draws me back to it as much as an opium den does an addict.

I've done a lot of reading in my time.....and most of them were really very good books. But this one....this one just grabs me. What a writer Ken Follett is. Kudos to him and his wonderful book, Pillars of the Earth. I need someone to come over here and do my laundry for me and also clean up around here as I can't bear to tear myself away long enough to do it myself. If the book wasn't so big, I'd even try and smuggle it into work. I wonder if an author has ever been sued by a reader's family for alienation of attention?

I know how you feel. I'm a reading fool, too. Sometimes I shriek "NO!" so loud when the phone rings that I've probably alarmed the neighbors. Maybe that's why the house next door has been on the market for such a long time. I probably scared potential buyers away. :-)

I say put the phone off the hook, (turn off cell if you have one) and put a "do not disturb" sign on the book jacket! As for cooking, there is always McDonalds...The clothes..nah! They'll wait! Read on...(smile)

I have been in the same boat - go away, I'm READING! But not for a long, long time. I HAVE to check out this book, as I would love to feel like that again.

Happy weekend, friend. Hugs.
