Having a Hissy Fit
I just finished reading "Hissy Fit" by Mary Kay Andrews and this might be one of my favorite reads other than "Savannah Blues."
Here's a part that made me laugh:
"I think I saw some bottled water in the house," I volunteered. "I'll just run and get it for Steffie before I take off."
"You're leaving?" Will asked, his voice sounding hopeful. Maybe the evening could still be salvaged, he probably thought. Right after his bride-to-be polished off a big plate of chives and romaine lettuce leaves.
In the kitchen, I opened the pantry and found the bottled water I'd left for him on Monday, right beside the Scotch bottle. It was just Poland Spring, the cheapest they'd had at the store that day. I took the bottle, and went into the bathroom, closing the door carefully behind me. I unscrewed the cap on the water bottle and happily poured the water down the drain. Then I knelt beside the commode and submerged the water bottle in the bowl. It glugged and glugged until it was full.
I placed the bottled water at Stephanie's place and blew them both a big kiss. "Bon appetit, y'all"
Have you read any books by Mary Kay Andrews? The one bad thing about liking her books, is she doesn't write them fast enough!
