THE BACKGROUND: The Mrs & I were driving home yesterday afternoon after a 2 hour meeting, and she pointed out a NEW Coffee Shop on Toronto Road that we hadn’t seen before (Free Press Coffee House). I slowed down immediately and turned into the parking lot. We went inside (da-da-da-daaaaa! ominous music plays…). The Mrs ordered a Turmeric Tea & I ordered a cup of their house java brew and a scone to share (da-da-DAAAH! more ominous music….). We sat at a big high-top lazy-susan table, equipped with a Trivial Pursuit game for customers to play. We started reading the cards to each other and, and, and it was then and there I discovered I am a Librocubicularist! The Mrs admitted to dabbling at being one, but I am truly one… “hi kevin!” And it has only gotten worse since I got an iPad for Christmas 3 months ago.
I checked on my iPad and in my bedroom to verify just where this behavior has led me. The following people’s names came up pretty prominently: Jean Reinhardt, Helen Jones, Terri Webster Schrandt, K.F. Breene, Larry Correia, Linda G. Hill , Guy Thair, Fay Keenan, Michael Kleen, Walter Tevis… even Carrie Fisher! Yikes!
Oh, seems I forgot to tell you just what this compulsion is!
librocubicularist (plural librocubicularists)
- (rare) A person who reads in bed.
Oh, and all those names are authors whose works I have read & enjoyed while in bed btw!!!!
