Paper Purgathon Paperbacks isn’t exactly about paperbacks, it’s about hard back books, and magazines, and paperbacks. Okay, so it IS about paper backs, then, right?? Yes, it is. Then why did you say it wasn’t?? Um, I meant to say it isn’t JUST about paperbacks! Well, in the future, please say what you mean, and mean what you say. Snarky- party of 1! Can I please just get on with the post now??? (mutters under breath) Fine, go ahead. Besides, the hard back books DID have paper backs too, technically. What?? The hard backs had paper jackets, so they are paper backs too. When did you become a lawyer??
So, since Presumed wasn’t about any actual de-cluttering either, we are now officially on Day 6, of 21 days. So, that means there’s __ days left. Again with the math!! Can we just please skip the torture, this time, of watching you slowly, and painfully counting on your fingers?? And toes!
Don’t forget the toes!! Who can forget the toes?? But it wasn’t just the toes, it was the peas -n- toes that still haunts me….
For those who are new, and don’t know what we’re talking about.
You’re welcome. Now your eyes have been initiated too! Now that it’s too late, to “un-see that”, don’t you wish you had run away?? Well, now’s the time to run away screaming, before you’re forced to view the next hideous thing!! You’re still here?? Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
For peas’ sake, can we peas get back to paperbacks????
Okay, so I hafta do 15 minutes of paper de-cluttering today. So, I looked around, in my usual “What can I blog about today??” way, and my eyes landed on a book, by my bed. And of course, being the brilliant blogopher that I am, I forgot to photograph it. (So, if you’ll just excuse me a moment, I’ll just quietly fake the shot now.)
And a thought balloon appeared over my head!
Books start with P! No they don’t. Oh yeah, they don’t.
(furrows brow, squinches mouth, thinks intently)
Aha! Paperback starts with P!! Can’t argue with that!
So, I wandered around the house, looking for books I’d finished reading, that needed to be returned to the library. Uh, oh! How much is this gonna cost??
No, no, no!! Not the Public one! The one here in the Park!! I think I’ve finally learned my lesson there!
Here’s my bounty.
3 real, genuine paper backs
2 fake paper backs, AKA hard backs covered with paper jackets
2 paper magazines
That’s a tidy little stack of papers to purge!! Why, thanks! I’m rather proud of this 15 minutes of purging! Really?? It took you 15 minutes to gather those up?? Well, no, but… But what? Then I still hadda go out to Vanronica, start ‘er up, drive to the clubhouse, and go inside! Whoop de doo! You had to drive a whole 5 blocks. Waaaaah, waaaah! I’ll have you know it was a tenth of a mile! AND, I hadda drive back! So, yes! it was 15 minutes!
Folks, I’m just done now, as I’m sure you are too.
Pass on by, pass on by.
