PinkGirl: “Mom, did you pre-order that book for me?”
Me: “no. is there some incentive for PRE-ordering?
PinkGirl: “no, I’m just DYING to find out what happened.”
Me: “I have no sympathy. You have broken the family fiction series rule.”
PinkGirl: “What rule? (as if she didn’t know)
FavoriteDad: “You don’t start reading a fiction series until they’ve all been written.”
I checked my laptop later. In MS Word, I see:
“I DON’T CARE!!!!!!!!
GET ME THE BOOK!!!”
Me, to FavoriteDad: “Are you going to let her talk to me in all caps like that?”
One thought on “family book banter”
“You don’t start reading a fiction series until they’ve all been written.”
Aside from ongoing series that have no planned ending (in which most stories stand alone anyway), I do try to live by this… waiting is just so hard!
