wow, that sounds very unique!

A long time ago in Cosmo, I think, i read that high paid corteseans (call girls) always fully dry before exiting the shower so as not to wet the whole bathroom floor. that is something ive done ever since, and value that info for some reason. you never know what you will learn from starnge books/articles

I go to one of the local Goodwill stores and sometimes a title will catch my eye. I glance at the first few pages and then toss into my basket.
I did buy a really stupid one this summer and I am donating it back so someone else can make my same mistake.

So Bruce did you learn anything new?????

Not really, cause I read the jacket cover (or back) and if it sounds like something I'd like, then I buy it

i've always done this... but not because of Cosmo. this is how my mother taught us to dry off. my brothers [adopted at 11, 10 & 7] do not do this [hey, i've stepped in water after one of them was finished showering]. mom said that was because she didn't teach them how to bathe - they came already knowing how.

Not as such, as I rarely buy books, but I check out all the ones that have been donated to us and pull out ones that sound vaguely interesting, I either re-check them every month or so and think 'why?' or when I start reading them I think 'why'. I think I lost 10 books last week when I went back through them, as I had no idea why they were on the read pile anyway!!

I've done it, but I usually end up reading them anyway because I go through books so quickly. I do have a couple reference books I've bought and rarely used, and still haven't managed to get through Lord of the Rings.
