Can you do it?
The Olympics are here. The more birthdays I have the more amazing it is to watch the abilities of the Olympic athletes. I have discovered something about myself as an observer and I would like to know where you stand on it?
With twitter, text, and all of the other options available, it can be pretty tough to wait till the evening prime time Olympic coverage to find out the results of that days events. I thought I was someone who was pretty good at delayed gratification. I can wait for things I value, I believed.
Well, what I have found out about myself is that immediate gratification may be more a part of my world than I want to admit. In the last couple of weeks of the Olympic games, I have not turned away once when the news commentators have said "spoiler alert", even though I enjoy watching the events later in the evening during prime time.
Can you do it? Can you wait till you watch the events later to know the results?
