Shhhhh I have a secret….

I missed the Daily Prompt yesterday, not really sure what happened there, so I told myself today that I MUST participate in today’s  one-word prompt so here goes

Daily Prompt: Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt SECRET.

Secret? Really? Damn, I should have done yesterday’s which was Leap. Ok, let’s think about this one.

Do I tell an actual secret? Should I share a story about a secret? Hmmmmmm…

Should I confess that I almost always read the end of a book before I am close to be done with it? I hate to be kept in suspense and it is just easier for me to enjoy what I am reading if I don’t have to worry about my favorite character being killed or hurt in anyway.

Just last night I was reading the book “Domestic Violets” and  I was about 3/4 of the way through when the main character, Tom, was having a bit of a life crisis. He had just been fired (he totally deserved it btw), his marriage was on the brink of disaster and I just KNEW something was going to happen to Curtis, his father who had just won the Pulitzer for fiction.

No way I could wait till the end to know Curtis’ fate. So instead I quickly skimmed the last couple pages of the book, got the information I needed and then went back and happily finished the book.  No harm no foul. (the book was great and I highly recommend it)

Sadly, this also holds true for tv shows. I usually read a recap (Entertainment Weekly is my favorite) for an episode (or series if I can’t decide if a show is binge-worthy) WAY in advance of watching the actual show.

For example, I have known for months the fate of Mary and the crew on Downton Abbey. I read the recap after the series finale aired in the UK (gasp!) .

Don’t worry, I promise not to share any spoilers (I never do!).  I just like knowing what is going to happen, especially since I am stuck on Season 4 and Anna is about to be raped – this poor girl can not catch a break!

This annoys my husband and mother to no end and they refuse to watch tv shows with me because I always sit there and remind them that I know the ending.

Phew, I feel so much better getting that off my chest. Thanks for letting me share.

Have a good day and thanks for reading!

  1. I do the same thing! I’ve been traumatized too many times to count!

  2. Right??? I don’t know why people go nuts when I tell them this, makes perfect sense to me AND makes it easier for me to enjoy the book or show 🙂
