A Holiday Chuckle

The holidays are often stressful for a variety of reasons--shopping, sickness, celebration, etc.

So, I thought it would be a good time to share a laugh. Here's my most humorous moment thus far related to my writing. I'd love to hear yours.


I often print out my manuscripts to edit them on paper. Because this sucks up the reams, and because reams cost money, and because I'm not independently wealthy, I usually print these "roughs" out on the backside of previously printed paper and continue to recycle.

One day, my husband printed some research information out for work. He gave the information to his coworker, a fellow fireman. The man came back to him, thanked him for the research and for the "bonus" on the opposite side.

My husband had printed on the back of the rare manuscript pages I'd originally printed on clean paper and put into the pile for reuse. Out of a four-hundred plus page manuscript, he'd printed on the back of a rather juicy sex scene from the book.

When my husband explained about my writing, the man asked my husband to let him know when the book came out.

To this day, that coworker asks how the "reasearch" for my writing is going.


Share your funnies.

ROFLMAO. I agree, funny stuff, J.

I stuck a wad of papers in our recycling bin a while back. When the recycling truck came by that day, a few papers must have drifted out because laster that afternoon, my DH came walking into the house with one that had been "blowing around the neighborhood". Sure enough, it was a steamy sex scene. I have no idea who read it before DH found it.
