Pillow Talk (Rated R for Ridiculous)

12 08 2008

Since writers tend to draw from their own experiences, I’d say chances are excellent I will never write steamy romance. Case in point. George and I are lying in bed when the following conversation takes place.

George: Are you using a new lotion?

Jeanne: Yes. They were out of the one I usually buy.

George: I thought so. What’s the scent?

Jeanne: Ginger.

George: It smells like Lemon Pledge.

Jeanne: Lemon Pledge! Are you serious? (sarcastically) Great. I’m so glad I bought a vat-sized tub of it. Now I can spend the next several months feeling like polished furniture. (I sniff my arm, then hold it in front of his nose.) Do you really think it smells like Lemon Pledge?

George (taking a big whiff): Yep. Lemon Pledge. (He snuggles close.) I like it.

If I have a doily on my head next time you see me, you’ll know why. In other news, I photographed my niece’s wedding on Saturday. The lighting in the room presented a real challenge, but I was pretty happy with the results. I posted a few samples here and plan to post more later. Right now, though, I feel a sudden urge to clean house . . .

Oh boy! I tend to buy things like smell like lemon Pledge. Like my Lemon Verbana mist from Bath & Body.

Keeps the mosquitoes off.

And I smell so clean. LOL

A sudden urge to clean house? Are you sure those fumes aren’t getting to you? Cuz wanting to clean house just ain’t natural. 🙂

Pictures are absolutely gorgeous!

Thanks for the positive spin, Michelle. If my ginger/lemon pledge lotion keeps mosquitoes away, I’ll consider that a worthwhile trade-off for smelling like a Thomasville showroom.

Love, J.

Thanks, Jen.

Actually, that whole “urge to clean house” thing was a joke. I’m pretty sure I could OD on Lemon Pledge all day long without succumbing to its rag-grabbing influence. If not, however, there’s always Dusters Anonymous.

Lemon Plede

That’s ok, I used some essential oils a few nights ago, one of which contained Clove Oil, and Rich said I came to bed smelling like a baked ham! Only he didn’t snuggle close…he started sneezing instead!!

My Life, Too….

This is EXACTLY why I don’t write romance novels. Although Doug may think the scent of Lemon Pledge is sexy. It’s certainly rare enough around here to give him a little thrill. 🙂
