Happy Friday and welcome to Book Probe! Hello to everyone stopping by my blog for Follow Friday (which is hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee and Alison @ Alison Can Read), either it be for the first time or you’re a returning follower. *HI!* Leave your blog’s link when you comment and I’ll certainly visit and follow you back – it’s in my best interest to.
This week’s question is:
Happy Mardi Gras! If they were throwing the HOTTEST books off of a Mardi Gras float — what would you do to have them throw to you…?
I’d get a friend to pretend that he’s stealing my wallet or something of most importance from me. I’d scream. I’d flail. I’d try – poorly – to push this “thief” away. People are too interested in the naked gay men dancing on the floats, even the men holding their wives’ hands. The wives are admiring the sculpted bodies, the body she wishes her husband has instead of his beer belly. Teenagers are too busy listening to their iPods, earphones in their ears, or on their iPhones messaging the person next to them. Kids are too excited from all the rainbow streamers and bright colours flying all around them, picking up complimentary condom packets that shoot out of the streamer guns.
The book fairy passes by on his float.
And then… a barrage of books rains down on me – on my friend, really. My friend is knocked out by the corner of a hardback, acquiring a concussion. I pick up the books – the HOTTEST books – my heroes – and run away, books in my pants, held in place by my belt; books in my arms, stacked to my nose so I can just see where I’m going.
Sorry about my friend, though. He was a dear sacrifice. That’s what friends are for, right? To get the HOTTEST books? Your HOTTEST books?
