My seven year old daughter and I had an interesting conversation in the car today. I was telling her that she needs to practice swimming in order to get better.
"There are some words I don't like Mom," she told me.
I said, "Oh, like what?"
"I don't like the word "practice." I don't like the word "learn." And I don't like the word "happily ever after."
"Why don't you like happily ever after?"
"Because it's boring."
Boring? How could she not like Happily Ever After's? Those are my favorite! But what if people are sick of happily ever after's?
I've seen a lot of 'realistic' endings to books lately. You know the not so happily ever after, this is life endings. They're good, but not my type. I read a book to escape the boring every day to day things. If I wanted a tragedy, I'd watch the news.
So, what's your type? Are you bored of the Happily Ever After endings?
