#4: Read on the BeachHere is our friend Jim expanding his intellect with the book "If I Did It" by none other than Orinthal J. Simpson. We annoyed him by asking "Has he killed her yet?" every ten minutes or so. Apparently, there is a lot of build up because as of half way through the book, OJ was still saying endearing things like "I only hit her that one time and that was it." That makes it okay right? Grrrr. The only bright spot, if there is one, is that the Brown family gets the profits from the book, not OJ. That poor OJ, he can't seem to catch a break. It's not often you get to see someone's karma come around and kick their ass, but there he is for all the world to see. It gives me some faith in universal order.
For my beach reading, I took recommendations from MNMom and Coaster Punchman. MNMom recommended "Little Heathens." I started the book and was enjoying it until I got to the part about graphically killing the two geese for Thanksgiving, at which point I decided this was not a good beach read for me. So, I picked up "How I Paid for College", which is a great beach read. All went well until page 152 when I discovered that the next page was 185. Wha'huh? My book was missing 33 pages right in the middle! Upon return from vacation, Border's gladly exchanged my incomplete tome for a complete version, which I plan to finish this weekend.
