Bedtime Story

I grew up in a small town. There was only one diner. We never went out for dinner, but we would often go out for breakfast after Mass on Sundays.

To this day, my favourite eat-out-meal is breakfast. I love going out for breakfast! It brings back so many fond memories. So most Saturdays, I take myself out for breakkie. The Husband is usually working and, besides, he doesn't really get into the "going out for breakfast" vibe. I bring my book, have several cups of coffee and usually some form of pancake or french toast.

There's a really neat restaurant in my town called Eggs Crepes Restaurant. As the name would imply, they specialize in crepes. Savoury crepes. Fruit crepes. Sweet chocolate crepes. Yum!

I was there on Saturday. Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. Two cups of coffee. Crepes filled with strawberries and English Cream on the side. Heaven!

As I got into my car to go back home, I noticed the store beside Eggs Crepes. It's a health care store. My brain sort of registered the words 'Sleep Therapy'. Having chronic insomnia, this caught my eye. And I looked closer at the sign.

CRAP SLEEP THERAPY PRODUCTS

What??!
Now why would I want to pay for Crap Sleep Therapy Products? I sleep like crap already. I don't really need help in that department. I can handle the crap sleeping on my own, thank you very much.

Then I re-read the sign.

Oh.

Maybe there's a literacy store nearby.

That is so funny... although here is my real question. The book is called Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone? Is that a new one I don't know about?

DGIT: The Philosopher's Stone was the first book. I think the American version was called The Sorcerer's Stone. I remember reading that there were slight tweeks to the Americanized version. I guess the Brits didn't think you could handle words like jumper (sweater), pudding (dessert) and snogging (kissing). Ruddy idiots!

Hey, hey!! LOL...I may not understand those british words..but I think brits are all righty people! LOL...(Besides, I have an ancestor from over there..somewhere...)

Hmmm...wonder why they changed the name of it though? Just because a few words are re-written for the americans?? Crazy author! :D

And 2nd timers we are Mo! I'm surprised actually to have fallen for this man..just because I felt I did not need one..I surely wasn't looking...

Wow, I didn't know they changed the name of the book. That's quite interesting. I want a copy of their book to see what else is different...
Now, back to the original reason for the blog...lol

I also read it wrong when I scrolled down but now I want to know...

What the heck does 'CPAP' mean???

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Who knew?

Anonymous: Thanks! And now that I've looked that up, it probably explains my crap sleeping. And The Husband's.
