When a good plan tanks…or reason #2349 to love ebooks

The Objective: Run into Walmart, grab kitty litter mat and a copy of Just One of the Guys by Kristan Higgins because her books are more awesome than chocolate with a Dorito chaser, then run into Market Basket and grab mozzarella cheese and milk.


Grab kitty litter mat, still no copy of JOotG. Dammit.

Get outside to find it’s not just raining, it’s deluging. (Yeah, just making up my own words again.) Stand there looking stupid for a few minutes before realizing it’s not going to let up.

Sprint to car, then fish in purse for keys. (And, uh, the word “sprint” is open to interpretation.)

Crocs filled with water. Look down…

White t-shirt. Soaking wet.

I still have neither mozzarella nor milk.

Thanks to Fictionwise I do, however, have JOotG. I’m sure that will come as a great consolation to my guys when there’s neither pizza nor morning coffee.

    Okay, life can go on without pizza, but no coffee? I’d shop in the wet tee shirt for coffee.

    I’m currently reading Just One of the Guys and am loving it. You will, too. :)

    I must have that book. Heading over to Amazon now.

    I’d have shopped wet for pizza. I’d do a lot of things for pizza.

    Loved it soooooo much! Even though it was first person present tense, which normally makes my head explode before the end of the first page.
