Bear

Step One: We admitted we were powerless ...

cornerofmadness is attending a library book sale. Again.

Logic Me - DO NOT LOOK

Addict me - I'm just walking past to go get a drink.

Logic Me - LIAR

Addict Me - Come on, it's 3 hard covers for a dollar and 5 paper backs for the same.

Logic Me - You have NOT read any of the books you purchased at the last 4 library book sales.

Addict Me - But but but

Logic Me - No buts. In fact, didn't you make a New Year's resolution no more reading library books until you've read books you own? For the second time??

Addict Me - Yeah, but

Logic Me - Didn't you just return three books to this library three seconds ago, promise breaker?

Addict me - Yeah but come on, you can't expect me to buy
Bleach? That series would be over 500$ and counting. OOOOO look, you love this series!

Logic Me - PUT IT DOWN

Addict Me - No, it's in my hand, it's MINE. I can't put it back now. OOOOO lookee, Diane Wynne Jones you never even heard of. She's passed on, you'll never get another chance. I might need another bag.

Logic Me - You pick up a bag and I'm popping a blood vessel in your brain here and now

Addict ME - Come on, I have three hardbacks already and look, I love this series too. Oh wait, no. Looks like this came out of a basement. It's foxed and has cobwebs on it. EWWWWW.

Logic Me - put it back

Addict me - WEBS! They're on me.

Logic Me - Serves you right. Now stop at three.

Addict Me - FINE. Bitch.
