Wow, you must have been desperate. :)
Am I the ONLY one who DIDN'T read with a flashlight after I was supposed to
be asleep? But then, I used to drive my mother insane with my daytime
reading habits. Weekends, or summer vacations, I would spend the day on my
bed reading. Mom would holler up occasionally for me to do a chore. So I'd
do the absolute bare minimum that could be construed from her request and
return to my reading. Minutes later--another yell, this one more specific,
frequently with comments on whether or not I was actively *trying* to push
Her revenge is that I now have a daughter who does it to me. When she
finally learns to read I plan to install an intercom system to her bedroom.
