Take the book. Leave the Cannoli.

I wasn't going to blog today however, I brought my laptop and forgot my Kindle. So here I am. I tried to think of something else to do, but there was a book I wanted to look at and I didn't have any errands that I needed to run that didn't involve grocery-ing. 

Today coffee cost me $26.78. I bought the $25 Barnes & Noble membership since it looks like I'm going to be making this a thing, despite Christopher's guilt tripping protests. He asked me what I was going to do today. I shrugged. He told me that I should just stay there.

Can you believe that I entertained the thought? I started saying to myself, well I can take my laptop in there. I could just open up a word document, write....post later and...... "NO!"

Because THE BATHROOM. I'd also be sitting in a folding chair AND basketball camp is THREE and a half hours. I wanted to say, "Son, please don't ask me that again." With the feeling of this is going to hurt me more than it hurts you, I said "No" for the fourth time.


I now have a table at B&N and I'm going to be totally bent out of shape if someone else is sitting here when I come in. It's like my own corner of the room. Dare I take a picture?

Of course! Feeling a bit ridiculous, I pretended to be looking at a magazine while I held my phone in the general direction of my spot.

In the direction that I sit, I am avoiding the sun on my laptop screen. There is a terrible downside to this angle. I bring my own healthy snack but my view from here is...

While I was paying for my coffee, I looked right at the Cannoli. I've never had a Cannoli and I've always wanted to try one. I never remember that I want to try one until I am watching a movie where someone is eating a cannoli, "Leave the gun. Take the Cannoli" or I'm on a diet.

Guess what? I'm not watching a movie right now.:-<


I am sold on the book I came in here to look at. It's called The Skinnytaste Cookbook. I don't usually buy cookbooks because the internet is filled with recipes, but when you're counting every nook and cranny of ingredients, you need to know the nutritional value of foods. I perused enough pages and decided it's a keeper. 

The End

  • Have you ever had a Cannoli?
  • Are you familiar with the movie line, "Leave the gun. Take the Cannoli?"
  • Do you buy cookbooks?
