Around 3:15 today, I headed over to Logan’s school to sit in the car rider line to pick him up.
(Side note: Do y’all know that there are parents who show up at 2:30 to pick up their kids when the bell rings at 3:30? Here’s what I don’t understand- I can arrive at 3:15-3:20 and be home by 3:45. That’s 20 ish minutes compared to 60. I don’t get it…)
While I was waiting, I picked up my Good Housekeeping magazine and opened right to the middle. Then I started reading backwards toward the front, and I caught myself about halfway through. I realized this is generally how I read ALL my magazines. I love magazines like my husband loves his New York Times. I realize this may make me seem far less intellectual, but I love the pretty pictures of shoes and desserts and funny articles on parenting. And let’s face it, the New York Times doesn’t have 5 New Uses for a Paper Doily like Real Simple does.
Ahem. WHAT. Everyone should know multiple uses for a paper doily…because everyone has extras hanging around the house, right? RIGHT?
I think I read magazines in the same way that I approach life. Dive right in the middle, and then work my way toward the beginning. Jump in with both feet and then think through where I should be headed. Sometimes this is really, really fun and sometimes I realize I should have started by carefully reading the front cover and proceeding in an orderly fashion…
How do you read your magazines, and what are your favorites?
