Booking Through Thursday
Today’s question is suggested by Carrie.
What’s the most desperate thing you’ve read because it was the only available reading material?
If it was longer than a cereal box or an advertisement, did it turn out to be worth your while?
My family and I are always going to lot of family gathering every years. This mean BIG family with lot of headaches. When we chose our destination for the events (mostly at someone house), then the party began. I remember a long years back feeling desperate of need to have something to read. I didn't bring along any books because I thought we won't be there long and will get home by the end of the night. We end up spending the night there instead. So it was a very long "How are you doing-let give update on you" talk with the members of the family. So by the end of the night, I was tired and went to bed. The next day, most everyone went home. I stayed back because my father had to help my uncle with fixing up his car. So here I am in the living room with nothing to do except watching TV. And there nothing good on. So...I pick up one of their newsletter that was left on table. It was an update newsletter of the community church that my uncle attend. Then...I walk around the house a bit and read some of the kids handwritten notes on papers with pictures they drawn that was stick into the fridge. Then there was the kids school textbooks, I open that and skim through it LOL.....
I guess it worth my while, because the tidbit stories that I read on my uncle newsletter was interesting and very amazing. And the kids art papers on fridge was cute and adorable to read. It just make my heart melt. As for the textbooks...I never thought myself to open that books again -- since it wasn't my favorite subject ;) -- and even though I did enjoy my times reading all those things, I still want to go home and read my books ;)
Same question above, What about you -- What the most desperation things you've read?
