Choose Your Own Adventure – For Adults

As a kid, I always loved Choose Your Own Adventure books – especially the space themed ones.  Never mind that my decisions usually resulted in being vaporized or being blown out an airlock.   Perhaps making those terrible choices in the books prevented me from making some poor ones in real life.  Sadly, I’m not presented with spacefaring situations too often as an adult.   I’m more often deciding whether to sit at home and watch TV or whether to go out.   Luckily, a good friend of mine recently gave me a “Date With Destiny” adventure book.  It combines my love of multiple choice reading with some fun humor.  This adventure series includes “Night of a Thousand Boyfriends” and “Escape from Fire Island.”  Both are clever books designed to appeal to those familiar with the Choose Your Own Adventure genre – but are definitely not for kids.   Somehow my choices always still seem to lead the the same conclusion – staying home watching TV.    Now that is realistic!
