The Greek Tycoon's Librarian
Late at night, My Man lounging in bed, Wendy the Super Librarian doing her nightly ablutions in between praying for death (seriously, do not feel good....)
My Man: You can't make me go back (talking about work).
Me: Well, you can't make me go back (Did I mention that I act like a 2-year-old when I don't feel well?)
My Man: You have to go back. You "chose."
(OK, yeah, I chose to go to college to become a librarian - but seriously, I feel like crap right now).
Me: I should have chosen a Greek tycoon.
My Man: Yeah, what were you thinking? Going for broke and Irish. But do you really think a man like that (a workaholic tycoon) would be capable of giving you a loving relationship?
Me: Love is highly overrated.
My Man: Oh really? Please. You'd be an emotional wreck if you were in a relationship like that.
Me: I'd just keep you on the side. Mikos could support us both!
My Man: Mikos?! Where the hell do you come up with this stuff?
What are you reading right now?
For the record, I am not reading a Harlequin Presents right now. Also, in the harsh light of a new day I realize that I really don't want a Greek tycoon named Mikos. If Harlequin has taught me anything, it's that if you're with a Greek tycoon it's usually because he's 1) blackmailing you to get revenge on your family 2) you're his secretary and after years of ignoring your mousy looks he's finally got the hots for you now that your BFF has given you a make-over 3) you had a hot one-night-stand with him, ended up pregnant, and even though you want to give birth to a bouncing secret baby, he finds out the bun in the oven has his name all over it or 4) you tell him about the baby, he doesn't believe you, and accuses you of being a money-grubbing whore - but he keeps you around "just in case." Great guy that he is.
Or, let's be honest here, it could be a variation on all four of those. In which case, oy vei!
My life is already too full and rich to add that kind of drama to it. Plus, even at 100% healthy I'm not sure I'm capable of handling all that. Seriously, those romance heroines are made of some stern stuff.
