You think it's easy standing on your feet all day, making coffee, stuffing jelly in donuts, and then having your delivery man be a gorgeous hunk? Not on your life. I'm Ann and Tom makes my knees go weak. But, then, I've also got to deal with his vixen of an ex-wife, Maria. I have to admit, she's drop-dead gorgeous, and I'm...well, I'm a bit pear shaped and not anyone's dream girl.
Still, I have to say, Tom seems attracted to me anyway. Maybe it's my cat, Mittens. Tom likes cats, too. In fact, he's asked me to go to a cat show. I wonder. Do you think he likes cats because his ex could hold her own in a cat fight? I certainly don't want to tangle with her!
Now, my own ex was a bit of a jerk. He was an alcoholic, and I thought when I was done with him, I was done with men. Tom, now, he enjoys a glass of wine with dinner, but he's not like my ex. And did I tell you, he has eyes that shouldn't belong to a man?
Oh, wait, did I mention, Tom's got a kid. Well, actually Maria has the kid, but Tom adores her...Catherine, but he calls her Kitten.
I wonder if I should take a chance? In August, you can find out when my story is told by Penny Lockwood Ehrenkranz in Love Delivery.
