We all have this special someone in our lives that we know everything about yet don’t really know anything at all. Someone we crush over and secretly fanaticize about but not necessarily have any real feelings for!
OH don’t look at me like that…you know exactly who I’m talking about. I call them “Our It” people. (Not to be confused with cousin IT from the Adams Family, waaaay to hairy for my taste!!)
“Our It” people; the prom king and queen, the cute elevator girl, the cute doctor who can’t seem to diagnose the condition we don’t really have!!
Common guys, admit it. We all have one of those people in our lives, we just occasionally suppress them when we are preoccupied with other viable prospects.
We never really talk to “Our It” people because we put them on such high pedestals and idolize them to a point where we forgot that they are actually normal people who pee and pass gas just like the rest of us (sorry for the mental image guys. Just watched the episode of Sex and the City were Carry farts in front of Mr.Big in bed)!
Even though, we can never muster up the courage to talk to “Our It” people in person, we have this strange confidence that once we do actually establish contact that they were surely going to fall head over heals for our fabulous selves!
Well people, yours truly actually mustered up the courage to approach her “It person”!
The cover of that book was ohhh so fine to say the least; attractive, catchy, juicy and very promising. Unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said about its content!!
I knew the book had mixed reviews and was deemed a bit too R rated for my taste, but I couldn’t resist picking it up anyways to find out for my self!
Idiot, unmotivated, shallow, sexist, party animal are some of the words that come to mind. I honestly think this dude doesn’t have any goals or aspirations that transcend exercising the muscle that doesn’t rhyme with train, which I assume is the only functioning one this dude has!!!!!!!!
Am I being harsh, nasty even bitchy? Maybe, but this yummy idiot ruined the vision I had of him in a few minutes. Why couldn’t he just shut up and look pretty?!!!
Have u ever watched a kick ass movie commercial and gotten really excited about it only to get really disappointed once you actually watched the movie. Maybe because the movie was shit or because you expected way too much that there was no way for it to live up to your expectations?? Well…that’s exactly how I felt!
They say “you can’t judge a book by its cover” mainly because covers can be misleading and depend on how well they are marketed!
Personally, I say why not? A book’s cover is chosen by its author to reflect what the book is all about, and if it’s too vague, it’s table of content could do the trick!
Having said that, every once in a while you get a book u can’t help but pick up and read along with to see what it’s all about. That’s what I have decided to do, so I am currently attempting to read that book, very slowly and not that often but hey, at least I’m trying to read it :)
So far, not that interested but I don’t think I’m ready to put it down yet and move on, at least not until I find a book more interesting to read ;)
So tell me:
1- Would you judge a book by it’s cover , explain why or why not?
2- If you were to choose a book cover for urself , what would it be?
3- What cover of books attracts you the most ?
