It was one of those days....

Did you ever have one of those days?

I had one yesterday.

Things were just not clicking in my brain the way they should.

At all...

I had a few on-line conversations yesterday that suddenly took a turn that did not make sense to me, but oh well, I went with it...

And a little while later I realized, in an enlightening flash (I should coin that), that the conversation did not take such a left turn - I just thought it did.  And my response to it is what really took the left turn....

And having done that more than once yesterday, I decided I must be over-tired from trying to do too many things at once...baking, making candy, watching the Browns lose, talking....

I finally realized I just needed to call it a night.

So I sat down with a cup of rum-laced tea and a couple of books.

I usually read mysteries.  I also like laugh out loud humor, especially after a long left turn kind of day.

I had picked up Janet Evanovich's latest book from the library the other day and was about a third of the way through it.  All of her Plum novels are fast reads for me - usually one sitting.  I cannot get enough of Ranger.  I speed read through all the laugh out loud LuLu/Stephanie antics (laughing out loud at times) just to get to the Ranger appearances.  He is so hot.  I could use a Ranger in my life.

But I digress...

After I finished with Ranger, I picked up my Kindle version of Indigo Roth's "Testament: Funny Badgers."

The first thing I noticed was that all the paragraphs are numbered.  WTF?   Maybe it is a kindle version snafu.  This looks annoyingly familiar.  I actually made it all the way through the first book of the Testament before the enlightening flash hit me. 

Yeah, it was still one of those days.

I am not a big fan of sci-fi or fairy tales.  And honestly, if I did not have a blogger connection to the author, I probably would have put the book down and not picked it back up - not because it is not well-written- it is. It just did not seem like my cup of tea. Or coffee. I drink more coffee than tea.  Not that that matters to anyone.

But I decided I should give Indigo's creation  more of a chance. 

And it was a good decision - probably the best decision I made yesterday.

1Roth kept me laughing.  What do a dating agency, clogged drain, bad back, gps, and fast food restaurant chain have in common?  They all found a part in the early chapters of 1Roth.

Too bad I need to run some errands today; otherwise I could just sit on the couch with my coffee and continue reading.  

But I will be back and will share more about this great read in a future post.

In the meantime, you should check it out for yourself.

The Kindle version is actually free on Amazon for a couple more days. Here is the link:
