Date a girl who reads

Date a girl who reads,
So that on the day she tells you she is from a marathon,
You’ll look at her in disbelief and without panting she’ll say,
“I was racing with the sun in a bus with no lights.
By jove! I managed five pages! My best yet.”

Date a girl who reads,
The one whose handbag is too heavy because it is full of books,
A bible, a hardcopy book and a myriad others on her kindle and the scribd app on her tab,
Offer to carry it for her because chivalry is still alive in the books she reads.

Date a girl who reads,
So that when on a date,
When she looks like she’s in a daze,
And when you think that it is that time of the month
You will gather your courage and ask “What is wrong?”
Then she will look at you with tears in her eyes and say,
“It is unfair that he had to die that way.”
And you will think that she looks so beautiful when she’s vulnerable and passionate about the books she reads.

Date a girl who reads,
The one who seems to know a little about everything.
Listen to her as she tells you how gladiators used to prepare for combat in the ancient Rome colosseum,
Get awed when she explains what a laparoscopic cholecysectomy is,
Then, when you see that her signature has some Japanese Hiragana characters,
Realize that she probably has the most beautiful of minds.

Date a girl who reads,
The one whose thrills are affordable and exciting,
Propose to her in a library,
Prepare huge shelves in the house you both plan to move into,
Help her look for huge boxes to pack her book collection.
Imagine what your kids will be like, having such a mother.
