Need is sitting on the computer desk. My four year old sister comes and crawls onto my lap. She spots the book. And then suddenly asks:
"Why is there no eyes?"
She is indeed wondering why the model's head is cut off so only the lips and down are shown. I start to laugh. I ask,
"You don't like the cover of the book? Because there are no eyes?"
She shakes her head. She doesn't like it.
"And what are those black squiggly things at the bottom?"
Of course, she's talking about the tree branches. I cannot help but giggle and snort at that. I try to explain that they're trees, but she doesn't seem to interested in my explanation. Instead, she spots a little stuffed mouse laying on the table and proceeds to play with it.
Ah, to be four again. Everything is so simple and uncomplicated. Sidetracked easily, yes. But you can also get away with almost anything because you're just too darn cute. I can't resist my sister. Especially when she snuggles in against me. Okay, say it with me now, "Aaaw!". Right, right?
This post originates from my brain and complete and utter boredom. I'm almost done Need now, but I don't currently feel like reading it. I'll expound on that later when I post my review, which will probably be some time during the weekend. There is no point to this post. I just felt like doing something, and posting makes me feel semi-productive. I'd feel double-productive if I actually got up and cleaned my room or something, but I'm too lazy for that. Instead, I content myself with posting random nothings on this blog. It is slightly book related, this post, isn't it?
Oh. I have an idea. To give this post some actual substance, I'll ask you all a question: Hate the no eyes/cut off face look or like it?
Personally, I like it. My sister doesn't. Let's see which side wins.
