My husband loves to read. He's read so many books from our local library that he only finds the New Book section interesting. So he decided to order books from different libraries across the state in order to find enough to read.
When his ordered books came in he was like my son at Christmas. He quickly ripped off the wrapping and threw it away. He totally ignored the big bold letters that said, "Do Not Remove." I found it in the trash the next day.
I showed it to him and he admitted tossing it out, he still didn't see why it was bad. I had to point it out to him. I thought, "Do you even have eyes?!" (That's my son's favorite line.) He read the message and finally understood the problem.
He felt a little silly handing the book back in to the librarian telling her he didn't know he wasn't supposed to remove the sleeve.
It makes me wonder what things I have missed that are right in front of my face.
I also want to say how much fun I've had being a part of the Campaign! I can't believe how many talented writers are out there posting there works. It's been great to read all the wonderful flash fiction. It amazes me how those few beginning words can conjure up so many different situations!
