I Solemnly Swear I Am Up To No Good.


I would never spoil something for someone. Let me rephrase that. I would never deliberately spoil something for someone. Even to this day when someone is talking about The Usual Suspects, I’ll ask those within earshot, “Have you seen it?” That movie is like 10 years old!

I don’t necessarily like spoiling something for myself, but I don’t hate it. I do however, hate when someone spoils it for me. For example (Halloween spoiler coming up), I was once asked by a “less-than” if I saw H20. I told him I had not, but was looking forward to seeing it. He then proceeds to tell me that Jaime Lee Curtis chops off Michael Myers head. I asked him why he would do that when I told him I wanted to see it.

No response came. None was expected.

So with that comes the news that a hacker has actually downloaded a copy of Harry Potter’s final book. The spoilers were available on a website which also warned that there is no way to verify whether they are in fact “real.”

So what would you do? Would you avoid the internet until July21st? Would you not take phone calls from your “alleged” friend hypothetically named Gordon? Would you wait until a “less-than” came at you from afar? Or would you actively seek out the spoilers figuring, “well if anyone is going to ruin it for me, it’ll be me and on my terms?”

What do you think I did?

Are the spoilers true? Who can tell? Will they leak out from the media? Perhaps. Am I a walking knowledge bomb? Don’t piss me off.

I know something you don’t know.

Hon, you can tell me if you're dying to tell someone. I'll even pretend to be mad that you did!
