Today is the 31st anniversary of the day Lawyer Guy and I said “I do.” We haven’t killed each other yet. To celebrate, I thought I’d do some quotes that filled with testosterone and all the wonderful things men are none to do.
LG: Good luck with the reception. You’ll be the belle of the ball.
Me: *snort* Yeah. Right. But thanks. 🙂
LG: Well, you’re the belle of my ball…
Me. ❤ ~ Text messages between Lawyer Guy and me in San Antonio
This is one of many reasons I keep him around!
Now to “true” fiction:
“You can drive.”
When he raised an eyebrow, she said, “I’ve had enough contact with human males to realize you seem to have a congenital inability to function while a female is at the wheel, and I’d rather your full attention be on the case.” ~J-Psy Sophia Russo to human cop, Max Shannon, BONDS OF JUSTICE, Nalini Singh
As he put the key in the lock, the knob turned in his hand without any resistance. His heart beat hard, and his skin went cold evey under the Vegas sun as the door swung open. He locked it every day. Forgetting wasn’t even an option. For someone as superstitious as a goalie, habits were so ingrained they took no thought.
No answer. Not that he expected one. What was a thief going to say? *”Yeah, I’m in the kitchen making a sandwich. Want one?”* ~Shane Reece, FULL STRENGTH by Katie Kenyhercz
And finally, a little tease from COWGIRL’S SWEETHEART (working title):
“Mommy, Daddy’s here. Right here.” He bounced again and would have fallen on Cord if she hadn’t let go of the sheet long enough to grab her son before he landed on his father.
“CJ. Enough. Yes. But be careful. Your dad got hurt.”
The boy quieted immediately, eyes wide as he stared at Cord. “You’s got a boo-boo?”
“I got a couple of boo-boos, bubba.” Cord emerged from beneath the pillow.
“No, Daddy. You didn’t gets boo-boos. You gots big owies.” CJ crept forward on his hands and knees and very gently poked Cord’s face.
“Yeah, you should see the other guys,” Cord muttered under his breath.
Do you have a “man story” to share? And a very happy anniversary to my very own alpha male hero! ❤
