Books, Books, & More Books March 24, 2007

Posted by Mitchell in Art, Home.

Today my Dad is gonna bring over a bookcase for me.  This means I must unload and move a current overloaded bookcase to my room and then distribute the books around.  I was afraid that one of these books might snag me and then I’ll get nothing done this weekend.  Then I came across Huckleberry Finn and said “Oh, Lordy.”  Hucklberry Finn is an old favorited of mine and I read it many times as a kid.  I had to open it and read a few pages, then it stirred up a memory I had to put up here. 

I started smoking when I was a youngster because Huck Finn smoked a corn-cob pipe.  It’s true!  If it was good enough for Huck, it was good enough for me I figured.  I took a copy of this book along with me on some family road-trip when I was 12 or 13 and I picked up a small corn-cob pipe along the way.  Probably from a Cracker Barrel restaurant.  I don’t remember if I ever used it or not, but it was my intention to do so at any rate.

Well, back to unloading books.

Enas, it’s never too late to start smoking. What are you waiting for?

I did start smoking. I started sneaking cigs out of other people’s packs and whatnot, when I was 13 or so. I quit about seven years ago, and I have no intention of ever picking it up again.

Now, if I could only put down the crack pipe…

Ah. Somedays I really want to quit. Others, I really like it.

Cigarettes, I mean.

Ah, thanks for the clarification. You don’t strike me as a crack-head though. You have more of a strawberry crystal meth type vibe.
