You are looking at the picture at the upper left side of this page and you're going, "What on earth is she going to do with all those things: a black nightie, a red bra, Colin Kaepernick unisex multi-sport flavored mouthguards, and a TRX training system?" Just for the record, only the mouthguards are flavored in Blue Raspberry, Fruit Punch and Bubble Gum.
Every once in awhile I feel the need for new underwear, and I found some really nice things at my favorite store. The sweet lady who owns the shop also reads my books. My first heroine, Christy, had worked at a lingerie shop in San Francisco on trendy Maiden Lane in the story, so I tried on every kind of French bra I could find one afternoon and came home after the family had eaten dinner. New underwear makes me feel like a new woman. What can I say?
I've been a little mouthy lately, not quite holding back words I probably should have. Hopefully I
haven't said too many things I will live to regret. The flavored mouthguards, with beautiful Colin demonstrating how to hold a football, were something I could use one of these days. The old saying that God gave us two ears and one mouth is ruminating around in my brain. Of course, it does all depend on what that mouth is doing. Could be very important for the health of a relationship, don't you think?
Now the TRX system is not some new bondage thing for use in the bedroom, although I am sufficiently whipped into shape by my new personal trainer, Erik. He was the one with all the tats in the Ice Bucket Challenge earlier in the month. First he kicked my but on this TRX thing, and then he squeezes eggs, flour and salsa on my head. All for a good cause, though.
But I am working it. I'm working my story. I'm working my sexual energy with my new underwear. I'm doing presses and curls and squats with my new bondage system, while my breath is fresh and my teeth are protected. The world is protected too since I cannot say a word. I have to write it.
So I give you some sage advice, should you want or need it:
1. Wearing red underwear is always sexy and makes for fun writing. It's also useful for other things.
2. Sometimes it's better to keep your mouth shut, and protected with a little restraint, and yes, it's okay to do it flavored.
3. There is no point to doing a workout unless it can be done to the extreme. Like sex, the more intense it is, the better it is for you. Training my mind and my body is good for compelling stories. When I get sore, staring at the stars in a hot tub at midnight can cure all ills.
Just a little of my personal logic for a dying August, waiting for a bright September. What do you think? I'll pick the best answer on Sunday night and award a tee shirt with his logo on the backside.
Life is one fool thing after another.
Love is two fool things after each other.
