who? me?

It was a tempting idea before rational thinking took over, if I made the purchase, I would be admitting I had a problem. Indeed.

Saturday afternoon I was passing time in the bookstore prior to meeting up with friends for an afternoon of watching college football (go LSU- that’s for you Kim and Celeste). Scanning the aisles I picked up books with capturing titles and glistening photos then briefly picked over the summary. One caught my eye as I felt the familiar tug of addiction leading. Pausing, I looked to my right then to my left. Hesitating a moment longer than Paris Hilton committing to a Porn video, I picked up the book, read one sentence then stepped back as though it was a command during the game of Mother May I.

No Mam, I may not. I do not have a problem.

In retrospect, perhaps I should have purchased the book with the title: “How to Break the Bad Boy Habit.”


  1. So basically now that you have admitted the problem you are on your way to curing yourself of it. đŸ™‚

  2. Ha! And here I thought you were about to give us a story about the Bookstore Method!

    Well, I’ll say this for book addiction. It’s not as expensive as other addictions and at least there’s something to show for it afterward.

  3. You just need to find a good one Jess. The good ones are all in the Detroit area BTW….well at least this one is.

  4. I share the addiction, could be worse though right???


  5. When I’m bad, I’m even better.

  6. indiana beat me to it.

  7. yeah…and going to vegas this weekend is going to help…uh huh…i’m still pissed i’m missing it

  8. Ummmm. If you DO go back and buy it…can I borrow it when you’re done? :o)

  9. That is a great addiction! I share it.
