I am the type of person everybody hates: I like to read ahead. I like to know what’s going to happen before it happens. You could assume that I don’t like surprises.
But if you did, you would be wrong.
I love surprises, actually. But for some weird reason, I always liked to read the last page of a book before reading the rest. Maybe it’s that I like the element of surprise as to how the characters get from the first to last point, but I’m just making guesses here. I’m not sure why I like to do that, but I do.
If I were given the chance to read a book about my life—from everything that has happened to everything that ever will—I would most likely be the person to go ahead and read it. I know that most people wouldn’t want to know when things happen in their life, but I would.
Anyone else would say something like, “If I know when big moments are going to happen in my life, then I would just wait until then for it to happen.” And I wouldn’t blame them. It would be a big deal to figure out when things happen and how, but I’m a big fan of reading ahead.
I’m the kind of person that asks questions before continuing a show. DO you know how many times I’ve been told just to “watch and find out”?
Well, I don’t have an exact answer, so I’m going to go with enough.
I am also the type of person that will look something up if I’m not told. I can’t do this whole waiting-until-it-happens kind of thing. I hate playing The Waiting Game. I need to know what happens, and I need to know as soon as possible. So just answer my questions—please and thank you.
The element of surprise doesn’t really take me by storm, per se. I’ve only ever truly been surprised a whopping one time, but besides that…I’m never really shocked. If I’m going to be honest, most things end up being pretty predictable.
So if you’ve got the manuscript to my life, hand it on over. I’m ready to read.
I hope it’s a good book.
Prompt: If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.
