We had multiple deluges last night. It was as if our house had teleported under Niagara Falls. The first one knocked me out of a sound sleep, and I spent a few disoriented minutes running around like an idjit trying to figure out what the din was about.
This morning dawned calmer, but not nicer by any means: foggy, damp, chilly. Again. Team Czar are on their way to Fair Hill, MD for the Foxcatcher 50 endurance ride. Young master Czar was shaking like a leaf since it’s his first trip this season in the big trailer. He’s never been keen on the slant load, and last year every time he was loaded he faced a 14-20 hour trip. Can’t say I blame the little guy.
Meantime, Firstborn’s not having any luck whipping up enthusiasm for this weekend knowing how sloppy it’s going to be. And parking? Oy vey. It ain’t gonna be pretty.
So here’s Mom and the old man, Mr. Bob, keeping each other company. Him with his butt planted against the shed wall, sulking. Mom in her usual location changing prices on her books. Not all of them, just a few.
Today’s special for you is Book One in the
Bad Boyfriends Series: Curling Iron.
By day Thomas Kane runs a fitness center, helping clients pump iron. The jocks and Cougars flock for the burn and the ‘tude, but it’s not enough to keep his business afloat when a conniving ex finds a way to apply the financial screws.
By night he dons Armani and oversees a small empire catering to clients with very special interests and tastes. David Black, a pole dancer at a friend’s club, hits all the bullet points as a new addition to his stable of companions. As Kane ticks off the man’s bona fides, he struggles to remain neutral. After all, it’s just business.
When Kane makes an offer to join his escort service, David finds it difficult to set aside his attraction to the elegant man and focus on the fine print. He’s out of work and out of options: perform or starve. It’s a no brainer. Agreeing to a trial period, with certain conditions, David quickly finds himself out of his depth.
Faced with unanticipated choices, one thing is clear… neither man is taking no for an answer.
