I'll be brave and share it with you.
As you may be aware, I'm on MySpace. They have initiated a new feature, their own IM product.
So, I downloaded it and sent a bulletin out to the 40 friends I have listed. Only three have activated the program so my options of chatting are severely limited.
Imagine my surprise tonight when I connected!
Oh, was I excited. I got to talk books! Romance books. My MySpace "friend" reads Nora Roberts. So we started comparing notes on authors and themes. I had mentioned that I enjoy romances that have Navy SEALs.
I was asked what the allure was about Navy SEAL romances.
My response garnered this comment, "SEALs do tend to have it all, smart, built as well as usually dark and handsome."
Oh , yes, this fellow reader new what was what.
I agreed and said that I enjoyed sexy vampires, werewolves and a sexy elf thrown in for good measure too . We talked paranormal romances versus contemporaries.
So, there I was, typing blythly along when WHAM! One little phrase made me sit up and take notice.
My IM MySpace friend?
WAS A GUY!!!!!!!!!!
Frantically I'm rereading all that I wrote about sexy Vikings, Vampires and muscle cars and I'm starting to blush to the roots of my hair.
A guy who reads romance? Ima thinking maybe he's going to make a wonderful and attentive husband someday.
I keep telling myself this to help get over the mortification.
So, um, this is funny, right?
