Readers Among Us

Scene:  A festive dinner honoring graduates of the Master of Liberal Studies program, attended by graduates, their families and faculty, administrators, and alumni of the program.

Main Speaker:  And we all have to realize, as we get older, that we aren't going to have time to read all the books we want to read.

Tiny but clearly audible voice from the back of the room:  Nooooooooooo . . . .

  1. I know! Isn't that the saddest thing! The other one for me is that I don't have time to have all the dogs I want. But I'm gonna try on both counts!

  2. Yes, all the more reason to squeeze in as much good stuff as we can, while we can - books, dogs, cats, whatever!
