None? At all?


I do. OMG I DO!

I owe this to y’all because of the previous post I wrote on M&B. In my un-ending quest to master the art of writing a romantic story (irony!) and also because my brain was functioning only at that level, I read this book called ‘What I did for Love’ (sounds cheesy, doesn’t it? I read it anyway) by one Susan Elizabeth Philips. To my credit it has all the points I listed out for you in the above-mentioned post. But to her credit she made her characters dark and realistic enough to hold my interest, for a while at least. Anyhow, the point in my writing this mini-post is to showcase what I like about her writing.

In spite of being a b***h I have never been the one for below the belt comments. But look at this one. The context is that the guy and the girl get married in Vegas (like Ross and Rachel) when under the influence of drugs someone gave them without their knowledge. They are both celebrities and the paparazzi follows them everywhere, blah, blah and they are in a situation where they can’t afford to let the world know they’ve done something so stupid. So they decide to carry on with the act and to convince the world that they don’t hate each other as much as the world thinks, the girl comes up with a plan to create good publicity.

Girl: Lunch at the Chateau on Wednesday, then dinner at Il Sole on Thursday. There’s a big Alzheimer’s benefit in a couple of weeks. A charity ball is right after that. We eat, we smile, we pose.

Guy: No balls. None.

Girl: I’m sorry to hear that. Have you talked to a doctor?
