Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
"But how are you? I'm sorry, I've completely taken over this conversation."
"Great. I'm great!"
I'm great? Two years of revenge fantasies, and that's what I come up with? Of course, in my daydreams, I'm never wearing matching pajamas either.
Oh, no. I'm wearing matching pajamas.
And my hair! I have wig hair! It's totally flat and sweaty!
Everything about this moment is wrong. I'm supposed to be dressed in something glamorous and unique. We're supposed to be in a crowded room, and his breath is supposed to catch when he sees me. I'll be laughing, and he'll be drawn toward me as if by magnetic force. And I'll be surprised but uninterested to see him. And then Max will show up. Put his arm around me. And I'll leave with my dignity restored, and Cricket will leave agonizing that he didn't go for me when he had the chance.
