Squirrel and I are heading to the Yucatan on Sunday. He’s going to be climbing pyramids, learning about Mayan history, trekking in the jungle and snorkeling in the cenotes. I’m going to be eating, drinking, making friends, drunkenly dancing and looking for cheap souvenirs to bring back for Christmas presents. And eating. And drinking.
It may sound like we have very different interests while on this little vacation, but don’t worry. It’s our honeymoon after all, so the fact that every morning, afternoon and evening is going to be Saturday Night will be the common thread that will hold the whole thing together.
And this is where you come in because while I’m basking in the sun and drinking margaritas, I’ll need something delicious to read. I’ve scoured the shelves of bookstores today and have come up empty. I’ve looked at my own collection, and while there are plenty of books I probably should have read by now, none of them seem quite right. So I’m now pleading for your advice. Won’t you help a girl out? Please? If you don’t, I’m afraid Squirrel’s going to sneak “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Right” in my bag. And if you think I’m reading that on the beach, you’re crazier than he is.
What would you read?
