For Sure, I Will Read It…

If the truth be told, what I know for sure is that I would not be able to resist digging into the book about my life and I will probably run to the very last page to see how it ended before taking my time to go through it with a fine tooth comb to know if the author/s got it right to the letter, if they did a shoddy job or if they tweaked it a bit to make the naughty parts juicier.Naked Truth

I am not going to tell you righteous tales of being so good that I won’t read it.

That would be telling a lie and my guardian angel would probably cover her eye’s in embarrassed shame at such a blatant fat gaffe.

It has been written already, so I might as well indulge and remind myself of somethings and possibly prepare myself for the best years of my life which lies ahead.

It actually reminds me of Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past. About how he got to mend his grumpy ways after the early revelations.

Without doubts, I know some pages will make me cringe in, ‘how-could- I-do-that’ manner.

Some would make me cry, laugh, get angry, sigh ,moan, feel nostalgic and every possible emotion that will be caught in-between.

I guess I will order up a box of tissue in case I turn into a watering pot, some feel good Swiss chocolate and a nice tub of Haagen Daz ice-cream to help smooth my ruffled feathers back into place or calm raging nerves if need be.

What a lovely exposition that would be, if ever such an opportunity came. After all, ”to be forewarned is to be forearmed.”

The Daily Post prompt This Is Your Life.

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.

  1. The thought of someone handing me a book about me to read and my not knowing about it until that moment, is slightly no very terrifying. lol! I think I might call my lawyer and then peek at the last page. Of course, it kind of depends on who wrote it…

  2. Such a good read! No, I don’t think I would read the book of my life. I know the old me would have in a second and would probably be disappointed with the ending no matter how it turned out. But now, I am just content to see each day as it comes and be surprised around every corner!

  3. Ah! I would read it and re-read it some more, cover to cover.

    There are some episodes in my life where I drifted through like one in a trance, perhaps I’ll see a detailed write up so I can understand what really happened then.

    It would also be nice to relive my happy moments and celebrate them all over again. I’ll definitely need a box of tissues to wipe tears of joy here and there. Lol

    I’ll flip through the sad pages, I won’t read those parts, there are some things that I’d prefer to forget. 🙂
