This Saturday, I'll be again attending a book discussion for the Flips Flipping Pages Book Club. The book club meets every month, and for this month, the theme is health and fitness. So, we're going to talk about books that go hand in hand with the theme.
The members of FFP are a fun-loving lot. They kid around, throw jokes at one another, and even make a few self-deprecating remarks every now and then. But when it came to the book discussion, when each member was talking about his or her favorite Seuss book, everyone became serious.
Since this would be my second time to join them, I've come up with a few things that one should NOT do during a book discussion. (I have been known to do some of these things though.)
- Yawn loudly while someone is saying a sad anecdote.
- Say, "I read that. You got it completely wrong."
- Interrupt the discussion by asking, "When do we eat?"
- Arrive ridiculously late. Help yourself to the swag. Then leave.
- Fart some more.
- Trim nails. If time permits, buff them.
- Pick nose. Then fart.
- Take out iPod and listen to the Jonas Brothers.
- Say that Twilight beats Harry Potter in all aspects.
- Mention that you haven't read any of the books because you're finishing, umm, Ulyssees.
- Point out that you only read self-help books.
- Flirt with the resident hot chick or dude (or both).
- Tell members to suck it and just go see the movie.
