Superfluous Post-Holiday Ski Vacation Pulp Novel Excerpt

"Janice," remarked Darlene, "I've just got to have that jello salad recipe of yours!"

"Oh sure!" answered Darlene brightly. "I think I wrote it down and taped it to your tonsils while you were sleeping. Let me check and make sure!"

Then Brad said, "Honey? We're going to miss the chair lift! Honey? Um....should I just go on ahead or...???"

"Brad," Janice finally replied, lifting a hand to her throat in dismay, "I think I left my mood ring in the chalet. I'm just going to run back for it. You go on ahead!"

Then, turning to Darlene, she said, "Come with?"


(From "Aspen Interlude" by Cynthia Smith, now in its fifteenth shocking printing!)

Dear Tiger-friend,
You know that when I read this post I thought I was at the blog of an over-50 fashion blogger?? Context is EVERYTHING. When I thought it was at her blog I was a bit shocked. WHen I realized I was at your blog I laughed my ass off( that is my exercise for the day). I should have known it was you at the recipe and the mood ring!
xoxo
