21 Answers to the Question: What Is Your Favorite Book?
Hopefully I'm not the only one who finds this question hard to answer...I mean, yeah I'm the type of person who finds it difficult to narrow down anything I like to ONE favorite, but with books this is especially true. I'm not talking about the OBVIOUS answer to this question (see answer 1)...I'm talking about if some clever friend of yours *cough* *pointed stare toward certain pen pals of mine* doesn't forget to add onto this tough question "other than the Bible". So, because I needed these answers (probably more than any of you do) I decided that this would be my next 21 Answers post. Enjoy! :)
1: "The Bible. Duh."
2: "That was plural, right? RIGHT?"
3: "And thus...I die."
4: "How do I politely say that this is an impossible question for me to answer?"
5: "It's possible to only have ONE favorite book?"
6: "I do not have the superpowers needed for this decision."
7: "You DID NOT just ask me that."
8: Invent a favorite book on the spot that doesn't exist and ramble on and on about it, adding details as you see fit.
9: "To quote Hamlet, Act III, Scene III, line 87: 'No.' "
10: "Would you mind repeating that question? I think I went momentarily deaf right when you said that last part."
11: "I am not in the mood."
13: *curl into fetal position and begin sobbing*
14: "Fiction or non-fiction? Something I've written or something written by somebody else? Thick or thin? Deep or shallow? CLARIFY PLEASE."
15: "OH MY WORD I THINK THERE'S SOMETHING BEHIND YOU!!!"
16: "I don't know, you tell ME."
17: "Mighty fine weather we're having."
18: "How are those *insert popular sport team* doing?"
19: "Pat the Bunny. Goodnight Moon. Green Eggs and Ham."
20: "Be original. I mean, seriously? That's the best question you could come up with?"
21: "I don't have A favorite. I have several. And I'd tell you about them...but you'd end up being here for a LONG time. So how about we go get a sandwich instead? I'm starving."
So...which was your favorite answer? Have any trademark answers YOU give to this question? (If so, please give them to me...BECAUSE I NEED THEM.)
As I sit here, consuming too much coffee ice cream and enjoying the gentle breezes of summer (which has FINALLY decided to show up) I feel ...
