Maggie Monday: The Bookish Edition
Unfortunately, when Maggie retired from her first job twenty years ago, she was already beginning to have trouble with her eyes. She needed the large print books.
Now that she has retired completely, she's lost an eye. I bought her a book on CD last Christmas, Carrie Fisher's Wishful Drinking, because if there is one thing that Maggie loves more than a Sidney Sheldon novel, it's a celebrity biography. At last report she still had not listened to it. She keeps thinking it's a DVD, and she doesn't have a DVD player. I think I'm going to have to visit and put it in the CD player for her.
May I say this to you about that (a favorite Maggie-ism)? Don't put off until tomorrow the things you should enjoy today.
