by Celeste Drolle
 

Start with two cups of Southern bosom-heaving romance. Stir with an ounce of Douglas Adams' "Hitchhikers Guide" sci-fi. Fold lightly with a shiny blue roadster that apparently hatched from an egg. Cook it over the flames of fondness between Amanda and Sergei. (Oops! ... I meant to say "Miss Backseat Pleasure" and "Shoogie.") --

Overview

Start with two cups of Southern bosom-heaving romance. Stir with an ounce of Douglas Adams' "Hitchhikers Guide" sci-fi. Fold lightly with a shiny blue roadster that apparently hatched from an egg. Cook it over the flames of fondness between Amanda and Sergei. (Oops! ... I meant to say "Miss Backseat Pleasure" and "Shoogie.") -- and have a little fun.

Celeste Drolle sets aside precious little time for writing, and her critics complain that it shows. Celeste shrugs this off, aims her TV remote, and tunes in another telenovela.


* * *


Time for writing or not, she rarely lacks for stories -- a trait, she points out, that she shares with other habitual liars. "Can you imagine if Dick Nixon had written fiction?" smiles Celeste: "I promise to tell the Half Truth, the Twisted Truth, and nothing resembling the Truth."


* * *


Pressed about the unlikely likeness of her publicity photo, she mumbles something inaudible about the British Museum, face lifts, and "what's a girl to do?"


* * *


In pursuit of her promise to write longer fiction one day, must her ravenous appetite for C movies, hush puppies and libidinous living be curtailed? "I have often worried that advancing age might trim my sails," muses Ms. Drolle. "Lordy, how mistaken can a body can be?"

I didn't expect an ending like that. LOL

It's all a matter of what you want. The piece is so very short, and it's free, so I won't go into a ton of detail. If you're hoping to find deep meaning or a life-changing view of Self, you probably won't, but if you're content with a neatly constructed chuckle that tickles three of your funny bones -- Romance, Science Fiction and Feminism -- this story is for you.

Good book though I wasn't expecting that ending. To "Elizabeth Gilles" I highy doubt you are the real deal and eve if you were you shouldn't try to command people. It's wrong and cruel and you shoild he ashamed of yourself. Pretending to be somebody is wrong and if you say something bad it can ruin their life so stop.~~M
