Possible ranting/whining/venting topics:
People Who Don't Return Books. This is on my mind every time I look at my bookcase. Rant-rant-rant, it's my own fault for lending out the books so what do I have to rant about?
People Who See You Engrossed in a Novel But Insist on Making Small-Talk. This just happened to me in the doctor's office but again, myself to blame. I tend to make eye-contact and smile when I enter a room. Combine that with the fact that I was raised to endure torture and eat poison before making anyone feel bad, and the outcome is, put the book away and chit-chat with the nice lady.
License Plate Frames/Bumper Stickers That Make No Sense. Is this book/writing related? No, but I'm going with it because I enjoy witty bumper stickers and license plate frames and I saw one yesterday that confounded me. Maybe you can figure it out... A license plate frame that says: "I AM PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS." What. Gives. I almost followed the lady down a wrong turn trying figure out the code I was missing. And the worst is, no one who I tell this story to believes me! There's nothing more frustrating than begging someone to believe when you're telling the truth!!! Okay that was a blanket statement but not being believed is at least on the top ten list of frustrating feelings. Everyone thinks I was confused and it must have said "I LOVE PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS" or "I GROW PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS", but I promise you, as I sit and type this it did say I-AM-portobello-mushrooms. If the lady in the car's purpose was to have someone's mind thrown into the spin-cycle for the rest of their drive home, she succeeded. You win P-shroom lady, wherever you are! I am portobello mushrooms too!
I admire people with bumper stickers. It seems so damaging to the paint! Do you have anything on your car? Your Alma Mater? Your favorite band? One that says, "If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished" or "Make way for the princess"?
A quick search on Google provided these gems:
- "The Book Was Better."
- "Destiny Has Brought us Together"
- "I Ignored Your Friend Request"
- "Don't Judge a Book by its Movie"
- "Shh...I'm listening to a book"
- "I Believe I Have a Keen Sense of Humor But it's Hard to Convey that Sense on a Bumper Sticker."
Let me know of any good ones you've seen! :)
