SANDY PATSY SAYS...............

My favorite part of the book is the worst memory of Peter's
wandering eye. It's the waitress story. In my gut, on that day,
I knew Peter & I would never stay together. I felt so ill, I wanted
to throw up. After that, every time we went out, I would immediately
scan the room for the woman I thought he'd choose to stare at. It
was sick, and I always felt sick. It was my unplanned weight-loss plan.
And yet, I did this for two more years. Why can smart women be
such idiots?
The reason this worst memory is my favorite part is that I want to
remember how awful I felt, the lesson, so I will never be with the same kind of
man again. All I have to do is dredge up the sight of Peter stuffing his
monetary tip into the front pocket of the waitress's apron as I
turned to see what I wasn't supposed to see. That feeling of
anguished horror floods over me to this day if I have to think
about that waitress encounter.
It will be awhile before I ever forget it.
A lesson - although painful - well learned.

OMG I totally have to read this book! I'm dying over the title. So awesome! I think my husband had about the same reaction as Ruby's did when I told him I had read about a book called Power of Pussy, and that I just had to get a copy. I swear it was a total deer in headlights look. ROTFL

Definitely going to look in to getting my hands on a copy of this one.

I love the title of your book. Next payday I'm going to order it and take it to work with me. I work in a male dominated field (county jail) and see what kind of reactions I get jujst fro the guys seeing the title. In reference to Peter and the waitress, he needs professional help. He craves attention and goes about it he wrong way. I eremember one time I met the man I livedwith at a restaurant and he was facing out into the crowd. A lady at the table near us was eyeing him and he was flirting with her while I was stting there acrossed from him. He didn't think I noticed. She was also there with her husband and family (children). I was so pissed I couldn't eat and he knew it. Needless to say I didn't touch or talk to him the rest of the evening. He hates being ignored.
