Today was another day of running Dad up for treatment, and on the way home we stopped for lunch at East Towne Mall in Madison. As per my usual routine when there, chicken teriyaki at Sarku Japan was had, and since Barnes and Noble was right across from the food court, hey, why not.
Two books later, we have the following additions to my reading list:
*Carmichael, Mary; Hattikudur, Mangesh; Pearson, Will- Mental Floss: In The Beginning
*Mass, AJ- Yes, It's Hot In Here: Adventures in the Weird, Woolly World of Sports Mascots
The former is a book of origins of various things, and Mental Floss really hasn't steered me wrong yet. The latter's title is pretty self-explanatory, what with Mr. Met right there with his back to the cover.
He is likely ashamed at the fact that he is a Met. And the fact that he is a soul born with a gigantic baseball for a head that the Mets cruelly parade around as some sort of circus freak for cheap amusement. His brain is made of rolled-up twine. Doctors have yet to find a cure.
I don't know where exactly I'm going with this.
