A VORACIOUS READER ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA
Eyes were popping at 7th and Montana this morning as an Anonymous Bookworm made the scene with the most unlikely reading material. The Bookworm, obviously no lightweight, had propped a large volume on health and fitness entitled The World's Greatest Treasury of Health Secrets, on what was perhaps one of the biggest Beer Bellies I've ever seen. "At least he has a built-in bookshelf," said Neighbor Richard, dryly. I say, good for him for reading-up on healthy lifestyles ... but is it really necessary to spend $39.95 on a book designed to teach you "how to listen to what your body is telling you?" Isn't it obvious, for example, that his body was practically screaming, "Put the book down, eat less and get moving!" Then, again, maybe I shouldn't judge a book by its cover ...!
