And a Good Book
Important things first, are these sheets silk or cotton?
Definitely cotton. I got rid of the last (and only) set of silk sheets I owned over twenty years ago. They were red. They felt cool and smooth. They were sexy. They were also a pain in the arse. Like Teflon, everything that touched them seemed to slip to the floor. I’m afraid practicality won over romance.
It should be noted that my pillowslip is silk though. Supposedly, the silk fabric is great for keeping the wrinkles at bay. Here’s the link if anyone wants to buy one of their own.
What are you wearing?
I’m wearing a gorgeous sheer négligée—just kidding! Like the sheets, it’s probably been twenty years since I even owned one of those. I slept naked up until I had kids. Once they were old enough to do the midnight prowl, I started wearing pyjamas that usually take the form of a long T-shirt. I’m currently wearing one that says “Coffee Now, Champagne Later” which sums up my life. J
What are we snacking on in bed while we read tonight?
We’ve got the top sheet pulled up nice and high, so we don’t get food in the bed as we snack on cheese and fruit. I’ve cut the cheddar into bit size cubes and the brie into wedges. The cheese is accompanied by grapes, strawberries, and sliced apple. If you’re really good, you can have a Tim Tam with a coffee later.
If I open this nightstand drawer, what will I find?
Depends if it’s my side of the bed or his *wink*
My bedside table will have hand lotion, a nail file, and a spare Kindle (you can’t have too many Kindles).
Do you roll up in the blankets like a burrito, or kick the covers off during the night?
I love to snuggle up in the blankets. If you attempt to take them off me, you’ll get banished to the couch.
Can I put my cold feet on your calves to warm them up?
Sure. For all of five seconds before I elbow you and shove you out of bed. J
We’re reading sweet romance. Tonight we’ve chosen to read More Than a Friend. It’s a novella so perfectly sized for a nice dose of m/m loving with a happy ending.
Here’s a little taste:
Tim followed Scott down the long hotel corridor. The patterned carpet and beige-toned walls seemed to extend forever as they passed door after door. Tim’s nervousness grew with each step, his chest getting tighter and tighter with each room they passed. By the time they reached the last door, he was almost light-headed with anticipation.
Tim stopped directly behind Scott and waited anxiously as Scott pulled the key card from the back pocket of his jeans. Scott slid the card into the reader on the wall and the door unlocked with a soft snick before he pushed it open. Tim stood at the threshold, reluctant to follow Scott into the room. He knew that once he took the next step, there would be no going back. Whatever happened from now on, it had the potential to alter the course of his future forever.
He was either about to make the biggest mistake of his life, or take a gamble that would pay off tenfold.
