And this book, also a gift from Bronwen to Adam, was a huge hit all day, reducing some of us (I'm not naming names . . .) to tears -- it's hilarious, if you're at all susceptible to poo-poo jokes, and really, so many of us are! It's actually also full of fascinating and apparently credible information about the lower regions and activities of our digestive system.
And back to the reading. I have to admit that this is my very favourite part of Christmas, when all the preparations have paid off, gifts have been opened and enjoyed, folks are fed and happy, and we can settle down, content in the good company nearby but free to sit with a good book (or a magazine from a stocking, as Bronwen does here).
