the cecilia adventures

September 29, 2008

I went to Schuler Book Store the other day with Cecilia 2.  It was a great way to spend the evening for two bookworms like us.  We reminisced about our childhood when I would go to Cecilia 2’s house and read.  We would spend hours pouring over books, mostly the Mandie books.  Sometimes we would stop reading to play dress-up which was based on the books we read.  When we got tired of playing dress-up (also known as playing Mandie) we would go back to our books (also known as reading Mandie – obviously the Mandie books were a mutual favorite).

Ah yes, the bookstore was a perfect place for the grown-up Cecilias.  We meandered through the maze of shelves, looking at books and the little trinkets so often found in bookstores.  We read the quotes on the coffee mugs and greeting cards, the novelty napkins and plaques.  Some of them were rather snarky, while others were a little too cheesy.  We found a few that were sincere and endearing.

“I found a perfect one for you,” Cecilia 2 said. “‘Dance like nobody’s watching’.”

I thought about it for a minute.  “But I love performing.”

She rolled her eyes, “Then how about ‘Dance like everyone is watching’?”

“Yup,” I said, “that’s me!”

Cecilia 2’s favorite quote of the night was “I love you to the moon and back”, and mine was “May I have this dance for the rest of my life?”

Some things never change.  Although we didn’t play Mandie, we spent the evening sitting on the floor reading.  The two bookworms named Cecilia know how to live it up!
