The Reading Spot

Everyone has a reading spot. It’s a place where you can comfortably just zone out for hours and read. Given that it’s a Sunday, and Sunday is the laziest day of the week (for myself, anyway), I think I’m going to enjoy a few books today. The question at hand is, where’s your favorite place to read?

Till the weather gets nice and I get to explore my still-new town, I’m going to stick to my bed. Propping up the pillows against the headboard with my lamp on… I can get a ton of pages done. -pm

Someday when I build my own house, I hope to have a library with built-in shelving and fill the room with a number of comfy oversized chairs. Then I can sit, smoke my pipe (?), and read to my heart's content.

Right now, I think my sofa is my preferred reading location. Either there or the "reading room" (you know, the one with a seat and a sink).

Tony--As long as you're not drinkin' a Bud and yelling "Wazzup" you're in the clear. As soon as the situation I just described happens, I'll have to call in an airstrike.

My favorite reading spot is whilst sitting on the toilet.

Or maybe between my two huge stereo speakers, blasting Hans Zimmer, or some modern electro/classical stuff. With a glass of fine merlot, (when the parents arent home.)

Tony--I really admire your ability to read and drink at the same time (when the parents aren't home).

Tony - - are your parents such tyrants that you can't do all these fun things when they are home?
I just picture a Risky Business-type deal where you are doing all these things at you parent's house in your undies and white socks.

You're picturing Tony in his undies and white socks? Interesting...

I didn't say I picture Tony in his undies: I was picturing the movie Risky Business where Tom Cruise . .ah, nevermind.
I retract my statement!!
Please forgive me Bob Jones. It'll never happen again!

If I ever am near Bob Jones U, I think I'll find a nice tree and read a copy of Anais Nin's The Delta of Venus in it's shade.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
