Commodious reading

This weekend as I cleaned the bathroom I noticed that a July 2010 issue of Real Simple magazine has been sitting on the shelf in the downstairs bathroom for a long time. I knew this because I could recite the quote on the spine of the magazine without looking.

Curious, I wandered into the family room where the rest of the crew was lounging.

"Hey guys, complete this sentence: 'I like things to happen..."

Everyone piped up, in chorus: "...and if they don't happen, I like to make them happen. Winston Churchill."

And then we debated the fittingness of that certain location for that particular quote. Because we're mature like that.

Never let it be said we don't know how to multi-task. Just think of all the chapters of scriptures and Shakespearean sonnets we could have memorized in those nine months!
