You’ve just reached the end of a book . . . what do you do now? Savor and muse over the book? Dive right into the next one? Go take the dog for a walk, the kids to the park, before even thinking about the next book you’re going to read? What?
(Obviously, there can be more than one answer, here–a book with a cliff-hanger is going to engender different reactions than a serene, stand-alone, but you get the idea!)
Generally, I'll take a few minutes to think about what I've read and process it. That can be a very brief period though. And sometimes my only thought is, "Well, that was hardly worth it." I do tend to think over things for long periods of time, so even if I pause only for a few moments to contemplate, it's quite likely I'll return to my contemplation that night before I go to sleep. Because I do a lot of contemplation.
Sox win! Okajima wins Matsusaka's game. For some reason, I love that. I love that Okajima had a better season (pound for pound) than Matsusaka last year, and I love that he returns to Japan and wins the first game of the regular season for the Sox. Baseball. Because everything else just sucks.
I feel so sorry for the fans of teams that have to wait for the regular season to start.
