If the time I have spent with certain individuals over these holidays, reflects how good a friends I am with them, my best friend would be Elvis. This summer was supposed to be the "summer of reading" (A direct quote by me some time in November) But somehow, by absolutely no fault of my own, I have ended up watching Elvis movies and only halfhearted halves of books like Dubliners and countless others have been attempted. I'm telling you, a lot of Elvis movies have been visually consumed.
What I am learning from watching Elvis movies is not much, compared to what I would have been learning from reading the timeless classics I have lined up on my bedside table. I have come to the realization that this is the summer of reading that never was, really, and that this is the summer of my friend Elvis - I love you tender.
