I now know from experience that there is something worse than having a story spoiled for you: spoiling it for someone else.
There is a customer at the coffee shop in which I work who told me about a week ago that she was reading the Twilight Series. It was busy & I didn’t have time to discuss. She came in a couple of days ago & I was really interested to hear her thoughts seeing as she was a mother & not necessarily in the demographic of Twilight readers. We began discussing & within about 3.2875 seconds I blabbed a major plot point from the final & fourth installment of the series (pictured above).
She was about 2/3rds of the way through the SECOND book.
I felt & still feel awful/stupid/awkward/ditzy/sick about it. I don’t know WHY but I just keep kicking myself! I think it’s because it’s one of those things I absolutely cannot take back in any way shape or form. I feel like this should have some kind of spiritual connection & maybe that is why this is so upsetting, but I am too tired to try & figure that out.
Just so you know, in the Twilight world what I told her is on the same caliber as…
***STAR WARS SPOILER ALERT AHEAD. DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN THE STAR WARS FILMS***
So, seeing as I am sure I will see this customer again, I need some advice on what I say to her next? Do I apologize again? Buy her coffee? Run into the back room when I see her walk through the door?
I need my conscience cleared!
