Oh Mary, you're stuck in the dark ages. Uh, or you would be if they had books. I love how indignant Dr. Jeff sounds. Like there's going to be a beating later. "You WILL buy a Kindle and read it every night! Do you hear me, Mary?" Of course that's just fantasy. If Jeff tried to pull that he'd be buried on top of Aldo's unmarked grave.
Given Dr. Jeff's expression there, Mary's answer should be "because I don't want it to eat MY soul too".
I agree with RogerBW, and as a traditionalist when it comes to books (I refuse to buy a Kindle), I just want to say DON'T DO IT, MARY!!!!!
"I know that Mary. That's your cup of tea over there on the table. Now why don't you want a portable reading device? Why?!"
As a traditionalist who also loves her nook, I have to say, "Mary! Try it! Even if Dr. Jeff is subconsciously trying to talk you out of it by pointing his middle finger at the screen!"
YOU SEE!?! That, right there, is exactly why the two of them can't get married! Imagine the horror of discovering such a crucial dichotomy AFTER the wedding.
Whoooo! Stop this runaway speeding train of a plot!
OMG, I want to claw my eyes out. One more day of this portable reading device discussion and I will stop reading MW. (Although I agree with Mary; I like the look, feel, and smell of a real book. And my ophthalmologist feels that constant reading on backlit devices may be damaging to the eyes. Maybe Mary has read that study...)
Cue the music, because tomorrow's scene will be right out of Ghost. Substitute pottery wheel for portable reading device and let Jeff guide Mary's hands and show her how it's done......oh, I think I just fainted!
So, I'm assuming we aren't going to be treated to scenes of Adrian & Scott's fabulous local honeymoon, or Jill immolating herself while burning her ex's photo? Just how long can Jeff & Mary discussing the benefits/drawbacks of a kindle be drawn out? Who am I kidding? This is the strip that dragged out Wilbur eating sandwiches for 6 months. Mary & Jeff will probably still be discussing the kindle when it's been replaced by some other new device!
This is all Jeff's way of tricking Mary into the wild web ways, mainly so he can stalk her on Facebook.
Mary only reads heiroglyphics and Sumerian runes.
@phoebes -- I think Mary will buy Jeff the *wrong* kindle cover on purpose, in order to "prove her point" and thereby gain his undivided attention!Now, about those HANDS that are about to touch...ooo, gives me such a buzzy feeling! ;0
This is scary for me, because I actually agree with Mary -- I like the look and feel of books. I like to have them on my shelves, where I can open one any time and...oh God, I'm a dinosaur.
Meanwhile, back in Vietnam:Peace Village nurse: "Bao lâu là chuyến đi vòng?" (How long was the round trip?) Drew: 30 giờ (30 hours)Peace Village nurse: "Bạn có dành nhiều thời gian với gia đình?" (Did you spend much time with family?)Drew: "30 phút" (30 minutes)
OMG, I can't believe it! Moy has sparked a debate aomong the bloggers: Portable reading device vs. a book. How unexpectedly provocative this story line has turned out to be. Maybe she can expand the conversation to include boxers vs. briefs. Karen must be laughing hysterically.
Boxers or Briefs?for Jeff it's depends
how long does this infomercial go on ?
the reason Jeff is so fond of the Kindle is because he can switch back to his porn quickly when Mary isn't looking.
Mary is going to run into Bonnie? Bonnie Johnson? tomorrow, and ask her opinion. "Have you heard of portable reading devices?" sending Bonnie? on another spending spree. I wonder if they sell those at Marcy's.
Mary is doing a wonderful job of keeping Jeff's and our minds and imaginations off the topic of what Adrian and Scott might be doing right now.Maybe next Jeff can show her how his Clapper turns lights on and off, and they can spend a week on that. Mary can defend pull chains on lamps.
