A couple of weeks ago, I went to Goodwill with my best friend about an hour before they closed, then we drove across the street to watch “A Dog’s Purpose” together and teared up several times. That last part is less important…That’s a lie; that film was so cute and I love puppies and it had so many happy moments and I wanted all of the dogs to be my pals!
What is important are the three books I got from Goodwill. An art book on sea monsters (I am a child, I know, fight me), a guidebook on how to survive unnatural disasters like a arachnoquake or a boaricane, and a book of translated Japanese love poems.
This is who I am. This is how I spend my spare time.
Now, seeing as this is about poetry, I could give a review on the poetry book. But I shan’t! I mean, it is really great, but I need to address how fantastic the word “beeclipse” is. Like come on, that’s so cute and punny.
Aside from the glorious puns, “How to Survive a Sharknado and Other Unnatural Disasters” is a book based on cheesy SyFy movies. This book actually exists and I can enjoy it whenever I want and it was a steal at only $2. Noice.
It’s really funny, especially because I now have the word “pirahnaconda” in my head and it will likely pop into my mind again tonight when I’m really sleepy and I’ll laugh out loud like an idiot and tell my roommate/best friend and then we’ll both laugh like idiots. Good times, good times.
There isn’t really a point to this other than to say I enjoy and admire this book’s silly humor and wanted an excuse to share these dumb words with everyone. I’m hoping that this year, I’ll come up with at least one funny, lighthearted poem to make someone smile, though. Fingers crossed!
