Reading for Oxygen

Hey, Ali!

I found a link to this blog post by Sarah Bessey. It looks good, but this line says it all:

I’m a book devourer (it’s official because it’s on my bio page, you know). I have always read for oxygen, my only punishment as a child was to have my books taken away from me.

Yep. I read for oxygen, too. (And, in all seriousness, my mom did take away my books and make me go outside for punishment. I can remember sitting on the front steps as angry as a person can be.)

Hey Nancy,

Humm. So many thoughts, so many questions, so many wonderments. Maybe I am suffocating? I am sort of between books so it is possible…

Okay, but what do we name it?

Shakespeare asked what’s in a name…and so we got stumped. Who knew that naming a blog could be harder than naming a child? Here are some names we considered:

wordsmerely.wordpress

wordsmere.wordpress

randomfrogs.wordpress

watchwhatwe.wordpress

inexplicable.wordpress

wordsshallbe.wordpress

merelyrandom.wordpress

aspicof.wordpress

randomwordplay.wordpress

wabisabi.wordpress

weaklyrandom.wordpress

We really like the frogs, but hate aspic, so — like the saying goes — go with what you know.

Hey! I don’t remember aspic of.wordpress. That must have slid by when I misunderstood your offer to cook me a tagine as a terrine…..yuuck!
