Persuasion

Him: Are they gone?
Me: Yes.
Him: For how long?
Me: Oh, a couple of hours, I guess.
Him: Why don’t you join me? Here in the other room, where it’s warm.
Me: It is cold, isn’t it?
Him: Yes. Please. Join me.
Me: No, I really shouldn’t.
Him: Don’t worry, darling. We have plenty of time. Where did you say they went?
Me: Um …
Him: Some kind of sporting event?
Me: The motorcycle ice races.
Him: ??
Me: I know.
Him: What are you doing so busily there?
Me: Just adding a few lines of dialogue to my novel.
Him: I thought you said you finished it.
Me: I did! But that was the first full draft. I keep thinking of bits and pieces that I want to include.
Him: Dearest. Please. Come. Sit with me. Relax.
Me: I am relaxed.
Him: I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Me: (sighs at the temptation)
Him: (lowering voice) No one even needs to know.
Me: Well …
Him: That’s right. Make yourself a lovely cup of tea and come snuggle up on the couch.
Me: You sweet-talker, Colin.

teehee - Right now I am chilling with Elmo and Grover, but as soon as the lad goes to bed, I will invite Colin over myself.

I can't resist.

I am putty in his hands.

I am also glad that Mr. Darcy is baffled by motorcycle ice races. Because really. Mr. Darcy shouldn't sully himself with that sort of thing.

What is your "research" uncovering?

My studies came to a pause during the hot bathing scene while I analyzed the volume-of-water-to-leverage ratio. I believe I could have summoned the strength to pour that pitcher of water over Mr. Darcy, as his manservant did. Perhaps I might have been moved to assist with the scrubbing, however, as his manservant did not.

I recommend black Sharpie-written posters placed at opportune locations around the house.

Are you sure you aren't a romance writer!
**giggle**

Don't I just love curling up with a romantic movie. Instead, I wrapped presents last night to my daughters favorite show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

I love that show.

But last night ... Mr. Darcy called to me ...

And I was obliged to follow ...

I think I'm going to have to check into this Colin of which you all speak. I am totally unfamiliar. But it looks like he has a lot of hair. I don't like men with hair. I should be still now. Zip.

Yes, be still lest you find yourself FLAMED.

But his hair curls so dashingly and broodingly over his high pre-Victorian collar ...

Observe.
