I was walking through Borders Bookstore on Saturday, perusing the reference section, when I heard music…sweet music…and I’m not talking about some Christmas CD blaring over the sound system:
Two 19 or 20-somethings in baggy pants and rock t-shirts, were walking by and one announces:
“You wanna go see if that have that one DVD over in the music and movies and stuff?”
“Well, why don’t we just go to the library and get it?”
“Oh yeah, we can do that…<starts singing made up jingle> the librarrry, berry, berry….liiiiibrrraaaaarrrrrrrreeee, let’s go to the library, brrrrarrry….”
and then the buddy starts giggling and jingling along and they wander off.
I almost did a touchdown dance right next to mathematics and engineering and wedding guides. Awesome.
Which brings me to another point. I am engaged and very happy about it all. But completely against the planning process. Eloping does sound awesome but the dude and I want a rocking dance party. Anyways, the wedding guides and planning guides are next to mathematics and engineering in Borders reference. I can see why…the tremendous mathematics of cake to people ratios and dwindling savings plus the engineering marvel of planning an event that takes into account the delicate balance of event timing, weather, publicly drunken relatives and the ever so dreaded YMCA dance. You have to admit that the adjacency of the topics is funny.
And last thing…cool feature on MSN Travel today…Literary Wanderlust.
