Theme Thursday: Beauty

*A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday)
*Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you're reading that features the theme
*Post it and don't forget to mention the author and title of the book
*Event is open for the whole week
*Link back to Reading Between the Pages

This week's theme is Beauty [Beauty-Related] and here is mine from How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu (p. 27):

I will say, though, that it's hard to stay in shape in a recreational time travel device. I eat a lot of ramen. There isn't enough room to do push-ups. Sometimes I pick up Ed and curl him a few times.

Trust me, that's about as beauty-related as it gets. The book is pretty dense with science fictional techno-babble. Male's all about the muscles and staying in shape.

This made me giggle, especially the part about "picking up Ed and curling him."
Thanks for stopping by this morning. I noticed in your profile that you are in Bloomington. My husband lived there during his childhood and he has fond memories of it. Have a great day!
