"I can't see the menu."
"You look like an idiot."
"I don't care."
"I demand you take that thing off." I whipped out a 3x5 index card and started writing. "What are you writing?" she demanded to know.

I held the card up and read, "Reason #186 I don't have a wife."

I like frontlit readers and if the light were to be too bright, I'm bright enough to turn it down. Now that I read Kindles, only one room in my house has lights bright enough to read by and it isn't the room where I sleep.
love your post

Perhaps it's time to give certain jokes a rest? They're dated and played out and even if they were funny once, they're really not funny any longer.

I really prefer reading with just daylight as it strains my eyes less. But in the evening it's great to have the front light. I turn it on only just enough so it has a similar 'reflection' to daylight reading.
