I’m just going to come out and admit it: blogging has turned me into a thief. (And it’s only post #3! What’s next—kidnapping?) Anyway, I just visited a blog where the author posts favorite quotes from her work once a week. I’m sure she’s the not the only one doing it, but I love the idea and I’m totally stealing it. Arrest me if you can.
This kind of feels like showing off pictures of your kids, especially when they were babies and you snapped a new shot every twenty minutes. “Look at this one! And oh, this one is so funny. Aww, did you see this one?” I’ll have to think of some snazzy name for this feature, like Quote-a-palooza or Quotacular or Quotarama. You know, something a little punny and really obnoxious.
Anyway, let’s share a few this week.
The first is from “She’s Hot Now” a short story from Beach Flirts! 5 Romantic Short Stories.
“The only relationship I’m interested in is a fleeting one—with fries and a hot dog,” Micki said.
And also from Beach Flirts! Here are a few lines from “Hot For Summer.”
“I was about to leave when the bells chimed on the door and someone walked in. Well, not someone. A guy. An incredibly gorgeous, tall, man with head-to-toe muscles. I wanted to tell him the model convention must be somewhere else, since I’d never seen someone like him in here, but I sank onto a stool at the counter instead. “Can I help you?” ‘Cause I can think of a few ways you could help me…’
And from “Ex on the Beach” also from Beach Flirts!
He wondered if she’d ever stop being angry. Then he remembered how she never forgave her sister for dyeing her Barbie’s heads instead of Easter eggs when she was seven, so probably not.
