David likes to read books and stuff

1 Comment

Yeah, so, I’ve got a couple of random things to share.

First of all, this is the shirt I chose to wear to my wedding dress fitting …

Second, David likes to read books that are either: A) of the comic variety; B) depressing (i.e. “Angela’s Ashes”); or C) historical.

He reads these books on Caltrain. Every day, Homer and I walk to the Caltrain station to meet David after work, and on the walk home David tells me something about the book he is reading. For example, for weeks he told me about the alcoholics and dead kids of “Angela’s Ashes.” Good times. I actually do love hearing about what he is reading. I only read Entertainment Weekly, so it’s good for me.

Right now, he is reading about the history of color, which led to this exchange on Facebook.

Actually, now that I look at my shirt and David’s Facebook status in this post, we don’t look like a happy couple getting hitched in a week and half. I swear, we are a happy couple! It is a coincidence that I wore my “I Don’t” shirt the same day I chose to tease him about his book choices on Facebook. I swear!

[Oh, and thank you to Kirk, who decided that that this Facebook status conversation was worth saving.]

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

One thought on “David likes to read books and stuff

  1. Angela’s Ashes is one of my favorite books. Why? Because I went into what I thought would be an intense meeting with an investor (I was the worker bee they like to intro.) I was nervous. He was nice. Somehow, we veered away from investing to talk books (he wasn’t really interested in what I had to say about investing) and he mentioned he was on the Pulitzer committee and I should get the next book. One of the best they had selected in years. It was… Angela’s Ashes!
