Well, my littlest decided it was a good idea to jump from the top of his bunk bed yesterday.
Needless to say....he broke his foot.
So, today I am carrying him from room to room --since he can't figure out the crutches thing (he thinks they're lightsabers and keeps waving them at his siblings mumbling things about not being the droids they are looking for. Whatever that's about ). So I thought I'd re-post something from years past.

The Twilight Saga was changed to The Very Sparkly Vegetarian Vampire Series (very fitting).
A Christmas Carol was changed to Merry Terror Christmas Stories for the Whole Family.

I guess that is why titles can change before they are published. That way the reader will (hopefully) be caught by the title of a book and pluck it off the shelf to take home. I mean, would you really want to read The Little Boy with Some Lightening Scar Thingy on His Head? Just not as catchy as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Well...now that I read it again....
Have a great week everyone (and I don't want to hear about any of you jumping from the tops of the bed. Seriously. One broken foot is enough).
