Eat, Pray, Read?
Blog Guy, you’re smiling today. You must have seen something amusing, huh?
I sure did. You know how sometimes I imply that fashion models aren’t, you know, geniuses? Like maybe they don’t have to think a lot to do that job?
Anyway, guess what? I saw a model reading a book on one of those electronic devices at New York Fashion Week.
And here comes the really good part. I got close enough to see that she was reading a book called “Eat, Pray, Love.”
I’m not keeping up with you here, Blog Guy. So?
Sigh. Do I have to explain everything to you? She’s reading the BOOK, but there’s already a MOVIE of it that came out a month ago!
So you see, it’s no longer necessary to bother with the book, but she didn’t even KNOW that, the stupid model!
Blog Guy, many people prefer to read a book before they see the movie, or maybe even instead of seeing the movie.
Oh really? Sure. Now you’re just being defensive.
I’m guessing you accidentally read something like “Charlotte’s Web” or “Pride and Prejudice” before you found out you didn’t have to because there’s already a movie, and now you’re embarrassed. Well I don’t blame you, chump!
