“What do you enjoy?” she whispered.

“Well, I like books, music….”

“No,” she interrupted.  “What is it you enjoy?

The times he’d rehearsed this scene!  But Albert was simply unable to reply.

Later, he repeatedly slapped his forehead.  Which isn’t a euphemism.

      1. I’m not surprised you don’t use it. I’ve only been using it for a few weeks. My main reason for signing up was that people said they didn’t know anything about me from my blog.

        Well, that’s because I’m boring, as a visit to Facebook will confirm. BTW, I referred to you as the Master of Missing Out. Let me know if you’re offended. I may or may not change that, depending on the size of the bank transfer.
