You Can’t Make Me!!!!

I recently joined a book club. They gave us an assignment to read and report on a specific book. I did it for a week and then it hit me. I voluntarily signed up for something that I hated in high school! Now I’m hanging out with guys who are also ditching class and playing pinball machines. I have regained my youth!

Don’t get me wrong, I loved high school because I did it my way. Frank Sinatra and Elvis sang a song about me. Ok, I admit that “My Way” wasn’t all about me, but it makes for great conversation at dinner parties and socials. If anyone tries to ask pointed questions, I simply call them an imbecile and walk away.

I went to college to study theology and became a youth pastor, then an associate pastor. I studied pretty hard and got good grades because it was very important to me. That was always the key for me. I got very bored with classes where I couldn’t see how they might benefit me later in life.

I couldn’t have cared less about Frodo or Gandalf. How would reading “The Hobbit” ever help me in life? It’s the same reason I never read any of the Harry Potter books. I know there are millions who loved them and still do but I’ve never been a follower. I’d much rather read a Grisham or Ludlum novel. That’s just me.

Give me an old stack of “Mad Magazine” and I’ll read for days! Does that mean I’m not cultured?

      1. Everyone has their favourite, mine was the late 50s & 60s, I started discovering them back in 1964. The 70s were cool though; the film parodies really took off in that decade.
