So we were talking about character deaths in novels

Dad: I hate reading books where characters die.

Me: Dad, you’ve read Game of Thrones.

Dad: Yeah.

Me: You read Harry Potter.

Dad: But they didn’t REALLY die.

Me: Dad.

Dad: Okay, fine.

Me: You’re reading Insurgent.

Dad: But no one dies.

Me: Did you even read the end of the first book?

Dad: Okay. But none of the HEROES die.

I left the room. 

Dad: IF TRIS OR TOBIAS DIE, I’M NEVER READING ANOTHER BOOK YOU GIVE ME.

  1. It’s cool to see your dad trying out books that you read. I could never get my dad to pick up anything but magazines.
