Give in already. Am I right?
Some of us avoid temptation so we won’t have to squirm and wrestle with ourselves. Others resist temptation and find that the abstaining makes us stronger, more noble, and possibly thinner. The rest of us give in.
We eat the cookies, buy the books, sleep late. We feel good about it, too, unlike poor Eve. How rotten for her that knowledge and evil were combined in the same tasty bite.
Knowledge is still irresistibly appealing, and one of the all time best places to indulge temptation is the public library. Everything’s free! Books, movies, puzzles, music, magazines, ebooks, audiobooks, and computer time are all available there, ready for consumption! Some libraries have public showers. Some have entrance tickets for amusement parks. Some have tai chi classes, ukuleles, and 3-D printers. So many healthy choices abound there.
Of course, the goodies aren’t actually free because someone pays for them, but we do that collectively with our taxes, like magic, for the good of the people. That’s us!
So if you’re looking to indulge yourself, go to your local library and get tempted. The romance section is a delicious place to start.
