Destiny, interrupts: I read books all the time, I just finished a really good book, “How to be a Better Mountaineer”.

Stacey, confused: “Mountaineer”? . . I didn’t realize you were into mountain climbing.

Destiny: Oh goodness no, I’m not, . . . mountains make me break out in a rash!

Stacey: Well, good thing that you got that book then, likely the book will help you be more comfortable in the mountains in the future.

Destiny, shock: No way this kid’s gonna go within a gazillion miles of any mountains I tell ya!

Stacey, more confused: Then if you don’t like mountains, . . . and don’t ever intend to go near mountains . . . why would you read a book on being a better mountaineer?

Destiny: Duh! . . No one goes around reading books about junk they are interested in . . . that’s what Facebook is for.

Stacey, shakes head in wonder: Whatever! . . . Well, good talking with you, . . . but now I want to get back to my book.

Destiny, takes book out of Stacey’s hands: Nice book . . (reads cover) . . . “Focusing On Your Faith”. . . You know I oughta read this book maybe.

Stacey: You are interested in developing your faith?

Destiny, laughs: Oh my goodness no, not at all. . . . I just like books with green covers.

Stacey: You choose books by their covers?

Destiny, amazed: Well, yehhhh! . . . Is there another way?

Stacey: Perhaps choosing a book by content would be worth a try . . . Anyhow, good talking with you, gotta get back to my book.

Destiny: Sure, you go ahead, I’ll just keep chatting, don’t mind me . . . So did you hear that Patricia Johnson is going to Italy for the Christmas holiday next year?

Destiny: Yeh, her and Jenny Long got tickets and are making plans.

Stacey, trying to ignore: Ummmmm . . .

Destiny: Guess how much do you suppose they paid for round trip tickets.

Stacey, trying to ignore: Ummmmm . . .

Destiny: Hey listen Stacey, I am starting to get the idea that you are ignoring me!

Stacey: Destiny, I am trying to focus on my book, now will you excuse me?

Destiny: Awww, Stacey, of course I excuse you, it’s not like I take it personal or anything.

Stacey: Destiny, I don’t want to get blunt but, like I said, I am trying to focus on reading my book! . . Now please, let me read.

Destiny: Not a problem, I don’t need a brick to fall on my head to understand what’s what!

Stacey: Thanks Destiny, I appreciate it.

Destiny: No problem-o, you just go on ahead, read that there book . . me, I’ll just chat away, no response needed from you for sure.

Stacey: Just how do you expect me to focus on my book with you talking in my ear?

Destiny: I tried focusing once . . . didn’t work.

Stacey: And that was because of . . ?

Destiny: Seems I always fall asleep.

Stacey: Maybe you need to think brighter thoughts.

Destiny: And exactly what kinda super-dooper thoughts are buzzing in your mind?
