Reading can be dangerous. Particularly when you are walking on the edge of a sidewalk. Note to self: badly spraining foot and ankle right before Spring Break is NOT good planning. Did I really want to spend the next 3 days in bed?
I spent today home, but tomorrow is inservice and I "need" to be there. Who else will advocate for reading, books, library lessons, and collaboration? If I roll around in a chair and put my foot up every time I’m sitting, does that count as "taking the day off and spending it in bed with foot elevated?" These doctors who give us directions like – reduce your stress and get some rest – must read fantasy books on their days off.
So let me check my rule book this far:
No reading while driving
No reading while sitting behind the wheel in a traffic jam even though the car isn’t going anywhere because that’s still technically driving and someone else may get irritated
No reading while at the movies
No reading while bicycling
No reading while standing at the top of the steps and holding the dog’s leash – particularly if the neighbors cats are out to play
No reading during the pep rally because you might get called upon for a skit
No reading Janet Evanovich in public at all – hysterical laughter while reading might cause others to step away from you
No reading at the gun range (don’t ask!)
No reading while walking on sidewalks (I’m sure I have a rule about running into walls while reading somewhere in this list)
What have I forgotten?
