This weekend I pretended to be the good wife, and took my husand’s car to have the oil changed. While I sat in the waiting room I not only typed this blog, but observed the other people waiting with me. One man was smarter than I and able to figure out the wireless connection the dealer offered and get online, two men had some sort of conversation about their cars, and the rest just sat their twiddling their thumbs. I’m sure like me they were thinking about the zillion of chores awaiting them at home, but that’s just a depressing thought isn’t it? Then they were watching some sort of news debate about the state of the economy, another really depressing thought…where were the books? Not a soul brought a book.
