Mary thought he looked a little like Tom Selleck, only with blonde hair. She pressed her face a little closer to the knothole in the fence to spy on him.
She thought he had a great chest – all hairy and hard.
Mary thought it would be nice to run her fingers through all of that hair.
She thought …
Laura stopped typing. “Mary, you think too much,” she mumbled taking a moment to proofread her work.

Write up to 100 words, fact or fiction….
This is a themed writing meme hosted by The Head’s Office. The goal is to write something that does not exceed 100 words. The prompt this week is in bold.

Oh poor girl! Such harsh criticism! This is a really fun piece. I was there looking through that fence drooling! I tried romance too & probably fared as well!
Wasn’t sure . . . then the twist . . it works so well! Sounds like the start to a film : )
Good twist on the romance genre.. would like to know what Mary was thinking?
Karen, I really enjoyed this. You had me going. How many times I have felt like Laura.
I’m afraid using Tom Selleck shows my age. ha!
Also? I write romance so I can have a little fun with the genre. 😀
Thanks for the comments.
Super twist at the end; haha Tom Selleck; that takes me back a bit. Enjoyed reading this
This was great – loved the twist on the rmance genre!
I love this, Karen! The way you take us in one direction (I expected a ripped bodice…), only to completely change the perspective is very deft!
Really enjoyed reading this, started one way and ended another. I’ve been blogging (increasingly) for three years but have not tackled writing other things until now.
