The man I love & adore + me, sitting side-by-side on the couch… 

The Husband: “You want to watch a movie?”  

Me: “I can’t. I have to finish this book. It’s only been okay, but I’m almost to the end and I have to see if it redeems itself.”

The Husband: “Okay, I’ll just watch something with headphones.”

[***4.5 hours later***] 

The Husband: “You want to watch a movie now?”

Me: “Maybe later. I’m almost finished with this book.”

The Husband: “You said that two movies ago.” 

Me: “This is a new book. The other one did not redeem itself in the end so I consoled myself with buying a book from an author I know I like.” 

The Husband, eyebrows raised: “And you’re almost to the end of that one?” 

Me: “Yep, and it’s everything I wanted it to be and more. Give me 20 minutes and we can watch a movie.” 

The Husband, eyebrows still raised: “Okay, don’t hurry on my part.” 

Me: “Oh, I’m not.”  

😂 … Has something like this ever happened to you??? I feel like only other readers will ever get this story. 😂

Hugs, and may all your books end with great redemption! (… or at least a good excuse to buy another book 🙂 

Olivia ❤️
