Are You Addicted?
Ah, to be a happy-go-lucky wolf pup without an addiction in the world.
But what about you? Have any addictions?
I'm addicted to chocolate. There. I said it. Not that I can't go without, but why would I want to?
And reading. Yep. I have to have a story to listen to or read. I love books. I hear this from patrons at the library all the time--they ran out of books--the world crumbles before them. That's me. If I run out of an audio book when I'm still on the road between work and home, I have to resort to listening to music! Heaven forbid!!! Not that I don't love music, but I want to lose myself in another world. And I feel I've missed the opportunity to immerse myself in another story for all that long drive just because I finished the audio book.
I was talking to a patron the other day about it, and she said the funniest thing--"Don't you just hate it when you have to take someone in your car and you can't listen to your book?" LOL!!! I loved it. Because I thought the same thing!
And writing. If I miss writing even for a day, I go into withdrawal.
And romance. That comes with a book.
And happily ever afters. That comes with a book.
And Highlanders...and werewolves and vampires and....hmm, I really do have a problem.
And emails. I really didn't want to list this as one of my addictions because it's so bad, but yes, when I'm traveling or my internet goes down, I feel I'm totally out of the loop if I can't read my emails. Many are business related--fan mail, editor mail, etc, so it's important stuff!
And work. I have to admit I'm a workaholic. Always have been. Must be that Puritan work ethic. Not that there are any Puritans in my family tree...just saying...
So I'm off to work, but tomorrow I'm reading! And writing! And...well, if I grab a chocolate bar along the way, I will be in seventh heaven.
What about you? Have any addictions?
