Authentic Chump, whose leave-a-cheater, gain a career and new home, story was featured in Tuesday’s column, had a suggestion for a Friday Challenge.
I was going to send along this picture of my reading room in my new house. I have always loved to read, and when the FW moved out he took the shelves out of my bookshelves, not the full shelving units, just the shelf parts. (Fuckwits are petty.)
I never had a cozy reading space in the home we shared because it was a cheap house built by his parents on their property. It was never a space I would have chosen for myself. When I was buying a house, I knew I wanted a space of my own for my books, and of course, better shelves.
This space holds symbolic significance of my mightiness. This could be a Friday question: What do you return to as a symbol of your mightiness?
It’s a neat question. We do Tell Me How You’re Mighty challenges, but where do you go when your mightiness is flagging? What gives you that can-do boost? What inspires you?
I love the pictures of her reading room and her reading material! And what kind of FW takes the shelves out of your furniture? Way to rise above, Authentic Chump!
P.S. I’m honored to be on the shelf with Margaret Atwood and Nancy Drew.
