My sister and I are similar in many ways. I just saw her Facebook ™ status and thought “yup”. And she writes:
” just opened a box my mom sent down for me- text books i thought i sold! for a nerd like me, thats exciting. ”
I, too, would get excited about a box of unexpected books. I’ve never said this out loud or even typed it before, but I’m kinda bummed that I got rid of some books. I hope Emily doesn’t see this; she was so proud that I cleaned some stuff out that I would hate to cancel the pride. I did a major book clean-out last year that felt good at the time (honestly — who reads Norman Vincent Peale anymore?) but now I regret the loss. Finding a box of books that I thought were gone would be golden. Golden, I tell ya.
For a nerd like me, that would be exciting.
