Some of you may find this title odd and wonder what it means, some of you may be wondering where we disappeared to, and some of you may wonder why you even bother looking at our blog. I hope to address all three of these wonderings and if any of you are still left in confusion, let me know.
I will first start with where we disappeared to since some of you might not care and will just want it out of the way. I was in North Carolina assisting my brother's family and Mr. Mitchell was in Oregon taking down wildfires.
So, I have waited until this moment to reenter the blogosphere. Not only am I in a much more positive mood, but in one fell swoop I have addressed everything I would have blogged about in the previous 3 months in a very concise fashion, and will finally have something that might capture the interest of our avid readers, but only if you're nerds, like us. If you are, then I can see why we're friends. If not, I apologize.
This leads me to the next wondering. This post title does not refer to our overall beings. Let's face it: Paul is not in every way > me. In many ways, I am > Paul. For example: his legs will never be as good as mine. Therefore, when it comes to legs, Sabrina > Paul. In this post, I am referring to book reading. That's right. This is the topic that will set our adoring fans on their ears. Paul > Sabrina when it comes to reading books. We had another book competition this summer, but this time it was official. I laid down the gauntlet and when we wrapped it up a few days ago I had my rear handed to me.
The totals are as follows:
Yep. But I am not giving up. I will challenge him again next summer and he'll eat my book dust.
Our recommendations to our nerd friends are Flyboys: A True Story of Courage by James Bradley (recommended by Mr. Mitchell) and The Clockwork Three by Matthew J. Kirby (Mrs. Mitchell). Our least favorite reads of the summer were Animal Farm by George Orwell (Mr .Mitchell) and Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson (Mrs. Mitchell).
I would now like to address the last wondering: why you even bother to read this blog. You read this blog because it helps you feel better about life, it might give you a giggle, and you can say, "Thank goodness I don't live with those guys!"
