Born Yesterday

No, look it up... in the dictionary.
Jeez, that's a book?
It's bigger than my first apartment.
Billie, what are you doing?
I don't like this!
I don't like this at all!

Every word in there, I don't understand!
I had to go to the dictionary
so many times,

people must have thought I was foreign!
This whole thing is making me
feel dumber, not smarter!

I've been reading this for a week
and I'm on page 13!

Well, that's not so bad.
Not if the book's 14 pages, it's not!
It's not supposed to go fast,
it's supposed to make you think.

Yeah, it makes you think how great
it would be to sit around and watch TV!

I don't want to do this any more. I quit!
Billie! Wait a minute.
Being smart isn't just about books.
It's about asking questions.

It's about finding out
why things are the way they are.

Don't stop reading.
But you picked
a kind of a big book to begin with.

How about starting with
something a little smaller?

Like what? A fortune cookie?
