Waiting room reading

I had to wait a long time at the rheumatologist’s this morning. I can’t believe that people can just sit and squirm with boredom for half an hour. I’ve always got a book in my bag. At the moment it’s “Women’s Wicked Wit” compiled by Michelle Lovric. 300 pages of quotes - and yes, as usual, I did laugh out loud. I’m still in the men’s section:

 Annie Proulx said “Listen if it’s got four wheels or a dick you’re goin’ a have trouble with it, guaranteed” and of course lots from Mae West “His mother should have thrown him away and kept the stork”

There are so many that I wish I could memorise.

lol a stork would be nice to have at home!!! hehehe

thanks for visiting me :)

maybe you can post more quotes later!

Lilize: thank you. I'll try to make a note of the exceptional quotes and post them later.


This does sound like a funny book indeed. I must check it out for myself, I am sure there are plenty of rather keen comparisons I could find in there that wittingly resemble my husband. Thanks for sharing about it, I am sure I will have plenty of burst out loud moments of laughter myself. God Bless.

I have just over 300 books, unread, not counting the 45ish that I have already read, on my Kindle right now. And it pretty much goes everywhere I go. Right now I'm reading Bram Stoker's Dracula (again), and from there, not sure what I'm going to read next, I have ALL kinds of books (including about 30 cook books!) on the Kindle!! LOVE it!! And I can carry all the books at once, which I like!

Vanesa: I'm sure that you would enjoy it.

Don: So you got a Kindle to replace the one that was stolen? Dom bought one before Christmas and she loves it. I thought that it would be difficult to read but I was surprised how easy it was to use. The space you must be saving!

Don said...

I'm actually on my second one since the one that was stolen!! My now X bought me a replacement shortly after the first one was gone, and a little while ago I sold it and bought the 3g model. LOVING it!

I also like to read books in a waiting room Nowadays we read from the computer since we also check emails. lol

A Lady's Life: I used to receive episodes of a book in emails everyday, I couldn't get into reading it.
