Lightweight Reader: Someone who gets sleepy or passes out shortly after starting to read.
Examples Of Use:
Hubby and I started back to Death by Swimming this week. We were waiting in the pool entrance area to go to our class along with a couple of our adult co-swimmers and dozens of kids and parents. We enjoyed the following conversation much to the parents’ delight.
Hubby: I woke up at 2 am last night with the light still on and my Kindle on my chest! I was so mad. This new Ted Dekker book is fantastic but I can’t seem to get very far…I read for like 2 minutes and then I pass out.
Me: sorry to tell ya, it was more like 2 seconds big guy!
Hubby: I know…it sucks. And I’ve always been like that. It was a struggle to get through school.
Me: you’re lightweight reader. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing, you start reading and BAM, you are asleep…in like seconds. Last week camping, I looked out to find you in your folding chair, head on your chest, sound asleep with your Kindle on your lap. Like who can fall asleep sitting UP in those uncomfortable chairs!?!?! Only a lightweight reader…
Hubby: I know. It’s crazy and I don’t know what to do. It’s like my Kindle is a sleeping pill.
Me: well, you are gonna have to man up if you want to read with the big dogs. I can get through a book a week. Try to keep up would ya?
Hubby: I am gonna have to take up drinking coffee…or try reading at the kitchen table!
Are you a lightweight reader or can you breeze through words on a page for hours? Even lying down? Know a lightweight reader? Any tips for hubby on staying awake? Come on…share the wealth…
