Me & Emma

I just finished reading a book called Me & Emma, and like most books that I pick up and buy for no good reason, I don't know how to feel about this one yet.

See, it has a twist ending that I think I should have picked up on earlier. It's not exactly a brilliant twist, and it makes me think that if I were "smarter" about these things I would have known how the book would end just from the blurb on the back cover.

You know...I set my alarm clock ten minutes ahead. And while I know it, and am completely conscious of it at all times, it still "tricks" me. I mean, I let it. I do it with movies, too.

I don't know if I enjoy it, though. I like feeling "smart," but I also like being entertained. And so I don't know how I feel about being tricked.

The clock in my car is set four minutes fast. But I know this and it regularly confuses me.
