The bats have left the belltower...
Here is my very sad copy of Breakfast of Champions. It fell apart on me last night, and today I was putting the final touches on my son's Frakenstein outfit and had the duct tape handy. I'm sure Kurt would approve.
I am committed to finishing the stack of books on my night table. This is the time of year when I think about my New Year's resolutions and think, holy crap I still haven't read all of these books I started about 5 years ago. This is the year I will finish History of Evolution dammit!
Reading breakfast of Champions makes me wonder if my father read it. I wish I could ask him. A very funny thing about this book, one of the main characters owns a Burger Chef, and so did my dad.
Here's a pic of his store.
For a very long time I had an ill conceived idea about what this book was about. One of them had to do with eating a large breakfast. Was it about an athlete? I didn't know, but now I do and I feel I am a little wiser. At least I know the title is about drinking. That's a relief.
I have a very special Halloween post for tomorrow. So please come back.
