My friend Rafe told me last night that I shouldn’t read books more than once and should give them all away.
We’re both into form and function, and uncluttered looks.
Then he told me that I should buy a plasma TV. Almost every male I know has told me that. I think that they’re overpriced and overrated.
I will never listen to him about not reading books more than once. Think that reading books over and over again, if I want to is one of life’s great pleasures.
Remember the days when celebrities would be asked when they first knew they were making it. “When I could afford a hard covered book.” Didn’t believe most of them, but it sounded good.
Nobody has ever said (to my knowledge) “I knew that I was making it when I bought a 52 inch Plasma TV.” They might think, it but…
I sometimes call my apartment The Sharper Image warehouse because I have so many gadgets. But I have absolutely no interest in plasma TVs–even if I could afford it–which I can’t.
I don’t know any woman who wants a plasma TV.
Am I missing something?
When did TV become more important than books?
Is it a male/female thing?
Or is it just a Rafe/Pia thing?
We never fight but we argue over every little thing.
