A few days ago I was at the local book store.
The same salesperson that has been there for years (probably more years than I’ve been in this town) was there. He’s one of those guys that you can always have a nice conversation with, he always has the best recommendation for a book for each and every customer so that it seems as if he read all the books in the store.
Could it be that he read all the books in the store?
What I was doing there is buying a gift for a birthday of one of the boys in my kid’s class. I cannot buy any more plastic junk toys, nor do I like that we get them at parties. To me, nothing quite like books, there’s always room for more, and reading (and more than that in the younger ages listening and imagining) are such capabilities I think we should encourage our kids to pursue..
We had a nice talk, I was whining about how I used to read so much, sometimes a book a day, and with work, and adulthood, and kids especially, it is not even close to it as the last book I read was while breastfeeding my baby about 3 years back and now I mainly read Facebook 🙁 ..
It was an oldies talk I guess, I told him how weird it is for me to get what’s up messages with people not even introducing themselves asking me questions about a job hiring I published, and he told me how the kids today are different and explained about his boys.
At least I do get to write, here and there, mostly here 🙂
This week I made vegan Parmesan fries. It is a comforting, warming, full of flavors, and a simple dish. It was grabbed out of the main plate before I could put individual ones which means everything..
