I wouldn’t believe what I did when I decided to take a day off today, Wednesday, instead of the usual Fridays. I walked out the house with the aim of returning 2 library books, and it didn’t quite happen that way.
At the library, I came across White Tiger, Man booker prize winner 2008 at the short loan section. I got to have this, I got to have this! Haruki Murakami would have to wait. On the way back to my son’s nursery, I walked into the Christian Community Action charity shop again. I thought I should have a look at what’s in there… and then that was it, I saw an entire collection of Dilbert’s books and comics staring at me, drawing me near, seducing me to pick them up now, now, now, here I am, come get me ….. take me…
And that was it. I did what I have to do. I came home with one library book (acceptable) and 6 Dilbert comic books. How could I resist?!! each book is priced at £1, and Dogbert at 50p. I paid a total of £5.50 for 6 books. I think it is a great bargain! I am going to find a way to hide them. My hubby will not be pleased when he sees this, I am adding 5kgs worth of book and he is against me accummulating more books at home. It is just not practical, because we live like Nomads, moving from place to place almost every year… oh well, I’ll fnd a way to hide it!
To make myself feel better, I told myself I could give them back to the charity shop if I decide not to keep them, give the books away to friends or list some of these books to be sold in Amazon.co.uk, honestly, it’s worth nothing in Amazon. I know people back home in Malaysia would love to have the Dilbert collection! There are six more Dilbert’s book sitting in the charity shop. :p
So what do you call a Sociopath in a cubicle? I told my friend it is probably called a Cubipath. Pronouced kwiubi or choobi, up to you. 🙂
