Unforgiveable sins?!

I've just done something really terrible, and MDH is now forcing me to blog about it (oh, the shame).

MDH was happily reading the latest Harry Potter book and happened to make a comment on certain deaths that occur during the course of the story. I answered him without thinking, and turned round to see a look of horror on his face.

I had inadvertantly told him the ending of the book.


I felt really really bad about spoiling the novel for him. But, as MDH already knows, I'm not very good at hiding things from him and I cave very easily. And I should also remember that however good MDH is at guessing endings, I'm not meant to agree or disagree with any of his theories until after he's finished reading the novel. He actually predicted most of the significant plot points of 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' quite accurately, and I have had a very hard time over the past week trying not to give anything away.

MDH is surprisingly good at guessing endings of novels and movies. Just to give you a vague idea about how good he is at picking up clues, he managed to guess the ending of 'The Sixth Sense' movie just by watching the trailers (He told me later that it was obvious from the way everyone was saying 'you'll never guess what happens!'). So, whenever he tells me that he couldn't predict the outcome of a story or film, I know that the twist at the end is really going to be something extraordinary.

I think he gets a kick out of being right.

P.S. MDH, I'm sorry I told you the ending of the book. It was an accident!!! Please don't exchange me for a new and improved model! *grins hopefully*

I don't believe that any sins are "unforgiveable", but spoiling Harry Potter... man, that comes close.

My wife did the same thing to me! The funny thing is how it happened: she started telling me this story about how her friend made the terrible mistake of spoiling the ending of the story for by revealing who died, and in the process spoiled it for me by telling the same same thing! I was more amused than anything, cos it doesn't really matter to me, but man, this ending spoiler does get around ...

Er... So if I absolutely refuse to read Harry Pothead, what kind of sin am I committing? :P - D W

ketsugi: Yeah, I'm glad I don't need to do penance.

wahj: Did she clap her hands to her mouth in horror? I did.

DW: Who is Harry Pothead? :P
