A Life In The Day Of Wednesday

Today I finished reading what I thought would be a light-hearted, saucy take on a BDSM trio. It's called "Fun with Dick and Shane: The Life and Times of a Submissive Houseboy".  The tale turned out to be a journalistic story with some profound messages.

More than once, I paused to hear music the author mentioned or to investigate a particularly unfamiliar British idiom.  In short, I found myself quite engrossed.

In the chapter of the same name as my post, there is a thought provoking treatise on life and death. Essentially, Gillibran Brown says we're all humans going through variations on a theme. His Wednesday was one of mourning at a funeral.  Others might be celebrating a new relationship or some success at work.

Here is his brilliant summation:

In short, as individuals, we are all just a life in the day of Wednesday, or whatever day of the week it happens to be.


  1. I've been thinking about reading that. Thanks for sharing, Darla! It sounds great.

  2. We must all be on the same mailing list! lol

  3. Thank you, dears. I found this on The GLBT Bookshelf Rummage Sale shelf. Then I went and bought the sequel, which has so far had me laughing crazily. The author even sent me a note of thanks through the purchase page. Gillibran's anonymous message gave a special touch without being creepy.


I thrive on feedback. Your comments are appreciated!
