and that just happened

I know this book's been around for awhile now but, I'm just now picking it up to read. It may have pulled me in as of late because I'm definitely a sucker for reading the book before seeing the movie and Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston are filming "Marley & Me", the major motion picture, as we blog. So, I'm waiting at Quiznos yesterday for a lunch date with my cousin Brynne and I pulled at my new book to pass the time. I turn to page 28 as this random guy approaches my table.


Random Guy, "That is SUCH a good book! Really I read it twice. It's SUCH a good book."
Me....smile.
Random Guy, "It's a little bit of a tear jerker in the end but, it's SUCH a great book."
Me, "I've liked it so far."
3rd Party Guy Who Neither of Us Know at the Soda Fountian, "Ya, he ___ ___ at the end!" Walks out the swinging doors. (I've edited this part for those who haven't read it)
Random Guy, "OH MY GOSH!!! Did he just ruin the ending!?!!???"
Me, confused, "I don't really know."
Random Guy, " Well, did you hear what he said?"
Me, "Yes"
Random Guy, yelling, "What a jerk!!! Why would he do that? He just ruined the ending and left. What a jerk!!!"

At that time, I have NEVER been so happy to see my cousin and her baby walk in. It was pretty much the most awkward 8 minutes I've had in a long time.

And 3rd Party Guy did ruin the ending. Lame.

Oh my. I've read the book and loved it. We'll... I actually didn't ready the last few pages because I couldn't handle what I new was coming... so I put it away, only to remember the happy parts. :-) I've contemplated going back and finishing the end... but I don't know if I can. I guess I'll just have to wait for the movie.

Oh. and what a jerk for telling the ending!!
