Sample Reading Excerpt
“I don't mean to put a damper on things. I just
mean we ought to treat fun reverently. It is a
mystery. It cannot be caught like a virus. It
cannot be trapped like an animal. The god of mirth
is paying us back for all those years of thinking fun
was everywhere by refusing to come to our party. I
don't want to blaspheme fun anymore. When fun
comes in on little dancing feet, you probably
won't be expecting it. In fact, I bet it comes when
you're doing your duty, your job, or your work. It may
even come on a Tuesday.”
