Book lovers 'round the country are sad to see Borders closing, and I'm certainly among them.
My cousin put this photo on Facebook. Our family always has had a flare for the dramatics.
I've always loved roaming the isles of any bookstore, or piling a table full of magazines while sipping on something frothy at Borders Cafe. The Borders in my 'burbs is less than a mile from my house, so since I know no one in my neighborhood, it's truly become the friend on whom I call when times are lonely and tough.
If Dan is working from home and needs quiet, I go to Borders.
If Dan is out with the the guys, and I have no plans with my friends, I go to Borders.
And, always - always - if Dan and I have a little spat, Borders is where I go to simmer down.
When news broke that Borders was closing, Dan joked, What are you going to do? You'll have no where to go when you're mad at me!
Can a marriage survive without Borders? I guess we'll soon find out.
