I don’t assume about you, however 1 of our favorite things to do is read.
- There is something about studying that can make a long boring day, just fly by.
All of the emotions that I read about, I can experience. I can become immersed in the story, and if it is cold and snowy in the story, I almost shiver with them. If the characters are on a desert island where there is no air conditioner and the air is sultry, I believe myself beginning to sweat. I sometimes find myself turning the air conditioner down low, so that I am more comfortable. I will tell the character that I bet they wish they were there with me at that time. I don’t do a lot of studying when anyone else is home because I cry when the characters cry and I laugh out loud with them. I tell them how stupid they were for leaving home with a sweater, or for going into the home alone when they already knew it was haunted. Reading is a good escape for me, however if I don’t have the temperature control set officially, I can’t care about our book. I keep a blanket on the back of the sofa, prop up our feet, and with the A/C turned low, I read until the book is finished. My hubby came home from work early 1 day. I was kneeling on the sofa wrapped in the blanket and crying. The air conditioner was set to sixty-eight and he asked me if I was okay. When he saw the book, he shook his head and walked away until I had finished the story.
