Saturday Snark is back! Marie Sexton has started it again, and I’m jumping on her bandwagon (God forbid I should just take the initiative myself, noooo, I have to wait for someone else to do it) and posting me some snark.
Yes, I know, I’m supposed to be making this a static site. I’ll do it later. Today, we get snark.
This is from Too Stupid to Live, which will be released on or about January 14, 2013 from Riptide Publishing. TSTL is the story of Sam from Whitetail Rock and Ian from The Fix. TSTL will actually be the beginning of a new trilogy titled Romancelandia, and WR and The Fix are prequels to it.
In this excerpt, Sam and Ian have gone shopping, and Sam’s dazzled by the domesticity of it all. Ian hasn’t exactly been proving himself to be good boyfriend material until the night before this. Now his poor head is reeling from being on an official date with Ian—even if it is just to the Farmer’s Market to buy fruit. This is Sam, reflecting on the wonder of it all by comparing this to some of his previous dates:
It was possibly pathetic, but he’d never been on this kind of date. He and Bryce had dated much like prey animals on the African savannah must—amidst a vast herd of their kind, hoping the cheetahs would find someone weaker to pick on. They’d never ventured out to the waterhole alone.
Hmmm, next week maybe I’ll dig up some snark something from Love, Hypothetically.
