I am happy to say, “Living History” is complete! My only regret is that I did not pick it up sooner…9 years sooner. Who can say how it may or may not have impacted my life, but what I do know is regardless of political allegiances, Hillary’s book was worth each minute and hour I spent reading.
With her book out of the way and after two autobiographies, I was looking for something a little more……fiction to read.
Good thing my coffee shop acquaintance who had me demonstrating my inner clutz, spilling water and essentially tripping over myself as I tried my best to keep composed and adult about my utter childishness.
It was the second time we’d had a verbal conversation. He was making fun of my choice of reading material and with great fervor, kindly suggested the next book I should read.
He promised me that I was “not going to be disappointed” and if I was, “you can come slap me on the side of my face.”
And he demonstrated on the left side of his face, “Right here, you can slap me right here,”
He stopped, tipped his head down and to the side, looking at me shyly he said “..not too hard. Just a little bit, but not too hard.”
“I promise you, everyone I have suggested this series to has LOVED it, nobody was disappointed and so far none of them have come to slap me on the face.”
He took a breath, “But if you don’t like it,” he reiterated, “my offer stands and you can come find me and slap me on the face and you’ll be the first one to do that.”
On his suggestion, the other day I picked up “Game of Thrones”.
Let’s see how I like it 😉
