*blowing the dust off the blog*
Yeah… It’s been a while. And also crazy busy, but what else is new? It’s been the usual chaos – the day job, writing, volunteering at my kid’s school, getting ready for RT and now, this.
Matt’s work gave all of the IT department money toward a Kindle or an iPad as reward for going above and beyond the call of duty – basically working 14-16 hour days for an entire month. So Matt got an iPad.
Earlier this week, I pointed out that he could get free kindle books if he wanted to try out some new authors, so he happily downloaded a pile of books and has been reading ever since.
Today, this conversation happened.
Me: How am I still so awesome after all these years? No clue.
Matt: No. How do I tell if the books I’m downloading are your kind of books.
Me: By ‘my kind of books’, do you mean the kind I write? If so, the mostly naked people on the cover should be a big tip off.
Matt: No – I mean books that you read.
Me: I read a lot of different kinds of books.
Matt: I don’t know…I girly books. I think this might be one.
Me: Girly books? Seriously? First off, fuck you. Secondly, do you mean romance?
Matt: I guess.
Me: Go to the Amazon page for the book and look at the genre. What does it say?
Matt: It says romance. I’m screwed.
Me: Why? Because you like it?
Matt: No because I’m mostly done with it and now I have to finish it.
(He’s never DNFed a book no matter how bad it was or how much he hated it)
Matt: *sigh* I guess this explains all the feelings in here.
Yep – this is the one I have.
