Book Apocalypse and, more butch stuff:-)

For those of you longing for book talk,

here is my participation,

in book apocalypse at http://bonjourcass.com/.

I hope and pray I don’t have to read,

all of them:-)

It was enjoyable,

Cass is fun and smart,

and always has bitchin’ ideas.

If you have never read her blog,

take the opportunity,

peruse.

Earnest:  showing depth and sincerity of feeling: earnest words; an earnest entreaty.

The other night,

I was called earnest,

My guard went up,

the old butch armour,

stoicism.

Did it mean,

Boring?

Staid?

Lackluster?

Someone, you can count on.

A bird dog,

a boy scout.

a best friend type.

Then I looked it up.

Pretty good word,

I like it,

a 19 Th century word,

a gallant and old-fashioned word,

a butch word?

Maybe.

My question about butch,

in a previous post,

sparked interest and creativity,

on the part of a few bloggers and readers,

Keep it coming.

My friend the busy writer,

says Butch should be brave,

well,

I’m butch,

I don’t think I’m brave,

but,

I am earnest and,

I am a work in progress,

so perhaps,

soon,

I will grow up to be,

BRAVE.

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. Hey Amy, I know you are lusting after The Brothers Karamasov. I think we would have fun, talking books and you could teach me about Nigerian Litt and statistics:-)
