having a bit of insomnia. not a rare occurrence for me, but one that’s not so common anymore, either.
i am a night owl, prowling around the house and poking around. all is quiet and i feel a kind of wicked delight in being awake while i know i really should be in bed. like those nights when i was a kid and i would stay up reading long beyond my bedtime…
speaking of reading, here’s a 3 question literary quiz from Rafe Esquith. he says this quiz would do away with all of the standardized testing that plagues education today:
1) Have you ever secretly read under your desk in school because the teacher was boring and you were dying to finish the book you were reading?
2) Have you ever been scolded for reading at the dinner table?
3) Have you ever read secretly under the covers after being told to go to bed?
*My bonus question: Have you ever been teased by your parents for reading your books instead of touring the Eiffel Tower?
so…did you pass or fail my little quiz? and tell me, what books are on your nightstand right now?
