Mechaiah: So, what book is that you're holding?
Me: John Adams' biography.
Tammy: Are you reading that because you have to or... for fun?
Me: (pause to ponder when the last time was that I read something because I had to) For fun.
Me: (watching Tammy's reaction mix between disgust and bemusement) Want to borrow it after I'm done?
Tammy: (continues reaction) Uh, no thank you.
(Sorry if I spelled Mechaiah wrong) I'm sure Tammy thinks I'm crazy. By the way, the John Adams book is good. I know why my cousin thinks so highly of him now, he's currently tied with Lincoln at the top of my list of favorite presidents (which is naturally not a very long list anyways...). The dilemma afterwards will be whether to read more of Adams or more of the present author, David McCullough.
