When a good plan goes bad

I had some errands I had to do earlier this afternoon, so I came up with a plan. After my errands were done, I’d take myself over to my favorite restaurant and pull up a seat at the counter. I’d have an unsweetened ice tea, whatever lunch special looked good, and finish reading New York to Dallas.

I was sipping my iced tea, waiting for my lunch and hitting about 90% on the Kindle page-ometer where the case was starting to shake loose and things were getting good and…my brother-in-law came in and sat down next to me.

Isn’t that always the way?

    Does your brother-in-law know he’s the “gone bad” part of your plan?! ;o) LOL!

    Hope you manage to get NY2D finished soon. And when you get to the end of the last chapter there’s a link to “more books by author” (at east in the ePub version) but there is an epilogue after that. Just an FYI so you don’t forget to read the epilogue.

    I just hate when people disturb me while I’m reading. Yesterday I was in my room reading a book and every few minutes my mom and my sister walked in and started talking to me and I was so pissed.
    I hope you were able to finish reading your book :)
