Spoiler Alert! Yesterday I saw Avengers: Endgame, the kind of movie that evokes the use of the words “Spoiler Alert!” when people write about it.
Spoiler Alert! I’m alert to the importance of not give away spoilers about a movie that
- billions of people have not yet seen,
- has lots of twists and turns,
- has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes,
- makes people laugh and cry, and
- says, to me, that group therapy is a very effective way to deal with trauma and loss.
Spoiler Alert! I am not doing my usual thing of linking to the Wikipedia entry about Avengers: Endgame, because that has countless alert spoilers in it.
Spoiler Alert! I wonder if I’m reducing my readership for this blog post by repeating the words “Spoiler Alert”?
Spoiler Alert! Last night I couldn’t sleep and started writing a song called “Spoiler Alert.”
Spoiler Alert! Here are the lyrics I’ve written so far:
Things in your life are going to hurt.
Even nice people will sometimes be curt.
Some foolish words you’ll be certain to blurt.
You’ll eat too much of a fattening dessert.
You’ll be afraid that you might lose your shirt.
Someone you love will treat you like dirt.

Spoiler Alert! I’m going to share all my photos from yesterday, right now!
I spoiled that last shot, obviously, by walking and talking while I was taking it.
Spoiler Alert! I’m alert to gratitude all around me, so I can share it with you!
