(You might have a really great mother-in-law, but in a cage match, mine wins. Hands down. No contest. And why are you trying to put your mother-in-law into a cage match with my mother-in-law? You know she's going to lose . . . so you must not love her all that much . . . because she's not as awesome as mine!)
Back in June, she bought me this gigantic action figure set with all seven members of the new Justice League!
I set the box on my desk, knowing that one day I would release them from their containment units and display them in my office.
That day finally came!
But instead of just setting them on top of my desk so that one day batismal candidates can make fun of my geekiness (true story), I decided to put them to "good use."
I am a book reader. I somehow procure books faster than I can read them. So, both at home and at church I have rather unsightly "to read" piles.
This is what my office "to-read" pile looked like moments ago:
Here's what it looks like now:
Batman/Cyborg/Aquaman: Important, contemporary books that I will have to read with a critical mind. Also, possibly lame books (that's why Aquaman is there!)
Green Lantern/Flash: Popular level books that I need willpower to get through... but can be finished in a flash.
So that's my "to read" pile now!
p.s. Just kidding about Aquaman. His comic is one of the best things DC has going right now!
