on reading aloud

while reading mystic medusa’s sun signs and soul mating, periodically slapping the book and blurting out “no freaking way,” in awe of the book’s accuracy, I arrived at a section called motivating and manipulating a virgo. I thought I should share this information as it could be vital to the bf’s happiness. I am of course referring to the motivating part. one item in particular, was dead-on. anyway, here’s a re-enactment.

cath: can I read you something? it’ll make your life easier.
(by the way, #8 in the list was “never miss a virgo hint. they’re subtle but nonstop.”)

bf: sure (listens with rapt attention).

cath: ok. this is one of the tips in dealing with a virgo. (reads) never mispronounce words. (stops reading). ha! that’s funny because I totally remember teaching lynette how to say crayon and mercedes when we were in elementary school.

then a.d.d. took over for a bit and we talked about commonly mispronounced words, like jag-you-are. eventually I got back to the subject of how to deal with my virgoness.

cath: ok. (reads) never mispronounce words. virgos think it’s evidence of a…a…slaw…slow…(stops reading)…uhm…shit…what’s this word? (points to book)

bf: slovenly

(laughing ensues for several minutes)

cath (crying tears of laughter): ah, right. ok. anyway (reads) never mispronounce words. virgos think it’s evidence of a slovenly and possibly substandard mind.

    Dude, I’ve got to read that book! Or rather, Jeff has to read that book! 😉 He isn’t the best at dealing with my virgoness.
