Happy Friday to You,
Happy Friday to You,
Happy Friday Dear You-ouu,
Happy Friday to You!
You have officially been serenaded today.
I'm embarrassed to admit I'm still not to 60,000 words, but I've been writing! I've included an excerpt below as proof. Keep in mind it's only first draft, so it'll be better after some more work. I'm starting to really like Edlark, and I feel like I'm cheating on Arden. I guess I would hashtag that as #writerproblems.
Edlark brushed a feathery kiss across my lips.
“How was that?” he asked.
I opened my eyes. “Not so bad.”
He laughed. “You don’t help my ego, Hazel.”
“No need. One more?”
“An audience wouldn't find the first very convincing.”
“Because I didn’t swoon?”
“I wasn’t trying to make you swoon. If I wanted you to swoon, you’d swoon.”
My eyebrow arched. “I think your ego is fine.”
“I’m just saying that I know what I’m good at, and I’m a good kisser. Fairy magic, you know.”
I tilted my head. “Seriously? You have to use magic to make girls swoon.”
“I don’t have to, it just makes the already pleasurable experience of kissing me even more enjoyable.”
He did think highly of himself, didn’t he? “How?”
“Let me show you.”
I remembered the stories I’d heard of Fairies seducing humans. “I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
“No!” Okay, yes I was. But I wasn’t going to let him know it.
“Then let me show you.”
“Are you daring me?”
“Yes.” He stared deep into my eyes. “It shouldn’t be that big a deal, unless you’re engaged in a relationship with someone else.”
The challenge in his voice was unmistakable, daring me to confess my feelings for Arden.
“Fine.” I shook my hair back, and raised my chin. “Make me swoon.”
Thank you, everyone, who commented last week! We have a winner for funniest of the week, and that photo is:
Here's some new photos:
|Could be in the pun section, too.|
|Totally like my children.|
|I like turkey bacon, but it definitely doesn't taste anything like bacon.|
|It's a multi-creature, universal expression.|
|Still an awesome costume, though.|
|Punctuation. Get some.|
|Isn't that sad looking?|
I hope everyone has a great weekend. My mom has come to celebrate my birthday with me this weekend, so I anticipate a happy weekend here! I'm going to be working for productive, too.
My favorite was the Cheeto dog, and Boy 1's favorite was the love/hate dog and cat (imagine that.)
Which is your favorite?
Are you ready for the weekend?
