I'm the slackiest of slackers you guys. That's today's confession. It's been many, MANY years since I've been in school. But way back when I was a student, I was very good about turning my assignments in on time. I might stay up all night getting them done. But get them done I did. Fast forward to now, when I'm an old woman in a book club. I seem to have lost my ability to pull the all nighter. We have our meeting tonight to discuss the book we were supposed to read for October: A Man Called Ove
I was actually excited to read the book. It's about a grumpy old man (who isn't actually very old). Unfortunately, I procrastinated so long, I didn't manage to get it read. Not only that, I'm not even close to halfway through. It's a good thing book club doesn't go on my permanent record. While I realize it's going to be spoiled for me this evening when we start discussing it, I still plan to finish it. It's pretty entertaining so far, and I imagine it will only get better. Next month, I'm definitely going to make a little more effort to finish my homework!
Have you ever failed to complete an assignment? Or shown up to book club without having read the book?
