I bought a copy of The Fault in Our Stars the night before I found out BJ has cancer.
Seriously. The night before I found out, I made a Walmart trip. (OMG WALMART. Cheap. SO cheap. Big. SO big. It had been a decade since I’d been to Walmart.) And I wanted to pick up a book because I had a feeling I would read the two I brought with me quickly so I wanted a back up. Well this book had been all over the place so I thought HEY, I’ll give this a read. I’ll do the legit thing and read the book before I see the movie.
So I bought it. And the next day I got The News.
It’s either the best or the worst timing ever.
And if nothing else, it’s just plain ironic.
So now I’m not sure if I should read it.
Like, maybe now might not be good time.
But part of me is also thinking that maybe, JUST maybe, it would.
Like, if I read it, it would be some sort of emotional laxative where I could just have one big cry and get SO MUCH emotion out of me.
So what do you think? Should I read it?
Please note that 1. I like to cry and 2. I’m feeling a little pent up right now.
But also 3. My husband has cancer.
