Teaser Tuesday (May 12)

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading.
The rules are as follows:

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


"There's Chuck who drinks his coffee black and eats pie with whipped cream for breakfast, like everyday is the day after Thanksgiving when people all eat leftovers in their slippers and housecoats. He loves the way you tease him every morning, hand on your hip and finger wagging, before putting the dish down in front of him."
pg. 69, Shoes, Falling; a short story from The Simplest of Acts and Other Stories, by Melanie Haney


I'm usually not a big fan of short stories, but this little book is amazing! I'm really enjoying it.

Now that does sound interesting. A lot of information packed into two sentences!

If only every morning could be the day after Thanksgiving! Or a birthday - love birthday cake for breakfast :)

I am not a reader of short stories either, though not on purpose.. Sounds like something to look into.
Thanks for stopping by my teaser :)

Dar said...

I really enjoyed this collection of stories too Jenny. I can't wait to read your final thoughts.

Present tense, very interesting! I'm always looking for short stories to like. Also: pie is definitely a legitimate breakfast. The whipped cream takes care of dairy requirements!

Beth F said...

I'm always up for pie for breakfast.

Lisa said...

Pie for breakfast! Every day should start that way. Good teaser!

The Bumbles said...

Wait - you mean not everyone eats pie for breakfast? Chuck's my kind of guy.

Staci said...

I would love to eat pie everyday for breakfast, especially with whip cream on it! Great teaser!

Funny to read this after seeing Charlie Brown in an above post ... made me think of "The Great Pumpkin".
