Desperate Measures

“What do you think of this beauty?” Lorna held the flimsy, red teddy up to her body and modeled it in front of the mirror.

“I think that sharing everything with your best friend is overrated. I’m drawing the line at lingerie.”

Lorna laughed.

“And,” her friend continued, “you better buy some spray-on tan cause you’re going to glow in the dark with that number.”

“I’m desperate! I’m losing Max’s attention and I need to do something drastic.”

“What do you mean, ‘losing his attention?’”

“He only has eyes for one thing,” Lorna replied with a grimace.

“What’s her name?”

Friday night football.”

  1. Karen, thanks for the laugh!

    I loved this and I suspect it is probably true for a lot of women!

    Thanks for reminding me about about Tess Gerritsen in your side bar. I love her writing. I need to see if she has anything new out!

  2. Friday night football doesn’t last year round, thank goodness! It does give me a bit of a break at night to get projects done that Rod has no interest in. Great take on the prompt!

    Oh, and I consider teddies punative underwear.
