I was just turned last week. I’m a librarian.”He stilled, as if I’d just told him I was the inventor of the tube top. “I watched a movie about a librarian once. Well, she was a librarian by day, a call girl by–“I stopped him with a quick lift of an eyebrow. “If you finish...

Jane: “Look, Dave Chandler left me on the ninth floor of our university research library without my panties after we lost our virginity together. He never called me again and actually turned on his heel and walked in the opposite direction whenever he saw me on campus. Unless you’re going to do that, I don’t...

If looks could kill…well, Dick was already dead, so nothing would happen. But Gabriel was not laughing.”See Dick,” Dick said, pointing at his chest. He then swept his hand dangerously close to mind. “Jane. Dick and Jane. Come on, you humorless jackass. That’s funny.
Aunt Jettie: “yes, i’m wandering the earth seeking revenge on ben & jerry for giving me the fat a$$ and coronary & I give out love advice to the tragically lonely.”jane: “Is that an ironic eternal punishment for the lady who died an eighty-one year old spinster.” jettie: “single by choice you twirp.”jane: “banshee.”jettie: “bloodsucker.
accidents” while visiting the McClaine farm, even though he didn’t hunt. The brakes on his car had failed while he was driving home from the farm—twice. Also, a running chainsaw mysteriously fell on him from a hayloft.He would never get that pinkie toe back.
The rest of the morning would consist of checking on a pothole in the parking lot of the village clinic and writing up a schedule for the community centre that might finally settle the ongoing feud between the local quilting group and the bridge club.It was good to be queen.
I fixed your car,” he said, tossing the keys from a jade dish on the little maple end table.I palmed them and eyed him speculatively. “You fixed my car?””I have walked the earth for more than a century. I managed to pick up some skills along the way,” he said, before reluctantly adding, “and one...
I hated her out of principle; and that principle was bitterness.
You can’t worry about the future so much that you miss out on the present.
Wait, is this a nice-ish way of telling me we had sex and I was lousy? That’s how you can tell I’m inexperienced? Because, if so, that’s just rude. And what were you doing at Shenanigans? And how did you find me on the road?”Gabriel looked wounded. “To answer your questions in order: The only...
