Lest I leave you all hanging again, one of my Facebook friends posted a link to a really wonderful essay* called "Date A Girl Who Reads" by Rosemarie Urquico:
"Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable. If you can only give her monotony, and stale hours, and half-baked proposals, then you're better off alone. If you want the world and the worlds beyond it, date a girl who reads.
Or better yet, date a girl who writes."
But you don't have to take my word for it (she says in her best LeVar Burton voice). Go read the whole essay HERE. Yay for girls who read!
*Except for the part about lying. Lying in the real world, for whatever reason, is almost never a good thing, IMHO.
