I have to say that I loved writing this book. It was hilarious trying out different "theories about avoiding sex" on Cade. Too bad he caught on and starting trying them on me too! And now that he knows what I was up to, I can never use these wonderful ideas again--like fake sleeping, mock-anger, grieving over stupid things, etc.
But even funnier than that, is the man who asked if this was first published over thirty years ago. "No," I said. "Why?"
"Because if it was, I think my wife read it and took it to heart."
Another woman bought a copy at a signing and immediately hid it under her jacket as she looked around, making sure no one saw her purchase. Is this novella like booze? Should I sell it with a small paper bag?
Anyway, I had a ball writing this book since the material is mostly silly, almost meant to be a joke. But the irony is that all of these ideas can actually work.
Have fun avoiding sex and otherwise.
P.S. Last night I gave my kids massages and facials because they cleaned the house. We used apples since we didn't have cucumbers. Anyway that baking soda mask really works. It's just two parts baking soda, one part water. :) I LOVE these pictures. And I hope this will inspire my kids to clean the house more often!
P.P.S. Cade and I are giving away $50 for Mother's Day. Feel free to take a second to enter HERE if you have time.
