I know it’s Friday, but I only just found this meme and I’m only a day late! I had a post all lined up, but I felt like doing something different so here’s a meme. If you want to participate hop on over to the BTT blog by clicking the banner.
Question: You’ve just dropped your favourite, out-of-print book into a bathtub, ruining it completely … What do you do now?
Apart from completely freaking out? What I usually do when something happens where an object I love gets mangled, or damaged, I have a moment of complete and utter shock where I just stare at it.
Yes I’d stare at it first.
This usually feels like it lasts about an hour, but I’m pretty sure it’s under a minute before I’d dive in and rescue it which would then be followed by a full blown freak out. I don’t think I’d cry so much as swear my head off and become very shrill as I’d be on the verge of hysteria.
I know this is how I’d react because it’s happened to my writing notes before and I just flipped out. I’d get quite angry with myself and then probably a little sullen.
After I got past that point I’d hunt down another copy and wouldn’t give up till I found it, even if it meant looking for a year. I figure somewhere out there, there has to be another copy, right? Right?!
Luckily that would never happen as I don’t read in the bath. Phew!
