Day 166- Lethal

Day 166- Lethal

Hi,

First, don't be scared by the article's title, it is actually the title of a book that consumed all of day 166. I had started reading it aloud the night before, but the four chapters we read had us intrigued. So, in the morning I started reading aloud again. Then, Levi and I made a deal that he would push JaRule and I would read the book to him. The terrain was really sandy, so I was happy to not push, and we were walking in the desert so there was no traffic to worry about. Our goal was to finish the 465 pages by bedtime. 

I ended up reading the entire day. We stopped for lunch and I read while Levi cooked at the rest stop. I read all the way until we reached a paved road near the end of the day. I was surprised at how exhausting it was reading aloud, but both of us were so curious what was happening next in the story. Around 4:30 we decided to camp and pulled over in the sand to set up the tent. Once inside, I continued to read, but my energy level had decreased tremendously. I had a throbbing headache, and my throat was sore, quite comical if you ask me. I wanted so badly to finish, but I couldn't do it. I asked Levi if he would read, but he said I was the narrator. I also tried to read without emotion and inflection, but it sounded terrible. So, I had to put the novel to rest so I could rest myself.

Narrator for a Day,

Shikira
