Romance Is In Short Supply

My crit group were debating a recent newspaper article that said women who read romance novels expected too much in their relationships with men and were doomed to fail.  I posted this on the group and it drew a few LOL's so thought I would share it with all my creative friends.

Romance tends to take a back seat in my life these days, but having lunch in a wine bar this week with my husband of thirty-one years, he began running his foot along the inside of my thigh underneath the table.

Touched at the gesture, I leaned forward and smiled across at him. He then lifted his foot to examine it and said, 'Denim was always great at adding a shine to leather. These shoes look good now don't they?'

Ah well, at least I can honestly say he never bores me.

I'm making a flying appearance today on a hectic Monday morning to wish all my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day for the 1st, and to my American friends, have a Happy Fourth of July. May you all enjoy a wonderful holiday with whomever makes you happiest, good food, good company and a break from the rat race for you all - however briefly!
