Six Sentence Sunday!

In this scene from my published novel, Just Friends With Benefits, Stephanie is trying to convince her mother (and possibly herself) that the nature of her relationship with the object of her affection, Craig Hille, is more than it appears:

“I understand. But do you think Hille will decide to upgrade your status from fuck buddy to boyfriend and girlfriend if you travel across states to have sex with him?”

Finally appreciating the humor of my 62 year old mother’s repeated use of the phrase “fuck buddy,” I laughed into the phone. “For the last time, he’s not my fuck buddy, Mom.”

In between chewing something, my mom said, “Ok.”

“And besides, it could lead to more.”

    I can’t imagine my mother using the word, “fuck buddy!” At least not to me! Enjoyed your snippet and your blog in general.

  2. Ha – this one made me laugh. If your mom is calling your, er, boyfriend a fuck buddy you know you’re in trouble!

  3. D'Ann Linscott-Dunham says:

    Fuck buddy, love it!

  4. LOL Stephanie’s mom is a firecracker! She doesn’t pull any punches. Love it! Great job on your first six, Meredith!

  5. Nothing like a mother’s observation to shine the glaring light of reality on a situation. LOL Very enticing snippet.

  6. Nick Kelly says:

    Heh, I’m always floored when my mom drops a line like that. Good stuff!
