On the planning committee for the church Singles Sunday School class, Tegan loved the idea of having a combination Christmas scavenger hunt (complete with prizes for the winning team) and a late night dinner. Even making the list for the scavenger items was fun, filled with laughter to the point of tears.
However, just two items short of finishing the list, no one seemed to be able to agree on anything. After considering just leaving the list at eighteen items, every committee member present balked at the seemingly incomplete number of items.
Jamie, however, in keeping with her extroverted and adventurous nature, jumped in with two ideas to complete the list of twenty:
19. Hug someone who is at least six inches taller than yourself.
20. Give a kiss to a stranger.
Out of the nine members present on the committee, Tegan was the only one who voted negatively on those two items. When she was outnumbered by a tired lot of eight who voted YES, mainly because they were exhausted and needed to get home and get the sleep they needed for work the next day, Tegan began one last crusade to change numbers 19 and 20. Would the committee bend to her wish, or not?
If they wouldn't change those two items, then what would happen if she didn't participate in numbers 19 and 20 of the scavenger hunt? What would happen if she DID?!

About the Author
I have been in love with the written word since I was old enough to read. After graduating college, I taught high school until I decided I wanted to spend more time "creating". So, twenty years after beginning to teach public school, I "retired myself" and now I write full time.
After living half my life on the West Coast, we moved all the way across the country, where we now live on the East Coast. It is just the two of us after our one daughter had the audacity to grow up, marry, and move away. However, that "move away" is only five miles from our home.
While writing, I also own and run a website business:
I love to create, whether it is designing marriage vow renewal certificates, marriage certificates, creating romance plans for married couples, or writing books. I'm blessed by the Lord to do exactly what I love.
