Fangirl or Unhealthy Obsession Case No. 21

​Release day! It’s finally here!

For the past seven days you’ve been like this on the outside:

Calm. Cool. Collected.

While on the inside:

It’s coming. It’s coming. It’s cooooooming!!

But now it’s here. You’ve set the day up right.
  1. Take day off work. CHECK
  2. Wake up at 11:50 p.m. CHECK
  3. Grab Kindle. CHECK
  4. Sneak past husband, children, and the dog. CHECK
  5. Find the quietest spot in the house to hide. CHECK
  6. Bring a blanket, water, and on-the-go food. CHECK
  7. Temporarily erase Facebook app so you don’t accidentally get any spoiler notifications from the fan groups. CHECK
  8. Anxiously and repeatedly hit the SYNC button on your Kindle until the book shows up. CHECK
  9. Begin reading. CHECK
  10. Five and a half hours, two bathroom breaks, one putting-the-book-down-and-hiding-in-the-closet-because-family-came-to-look-for-you later, you’re done.
  11. You close the book.
  12. Stare around the room.
  13. What is this feeling? It’s like you’ve lost your best friend.
  14. . . . You rub your tired, dry eyes. Take that last sip of water. Hug the Kindle to your chest. Take a deep breath. Nod. Tap the screen and begin re-reading. CHECK.
