Typical evening at the Gerickes.
This week's question: What fictional character could make you leave your spouse or significant other?
Well, that's an easy one.
Cause I love her and she loves me.
I mean, really, how could she not? I flood her with candlelight and romance, because, darn it, she deserves all the attention I can pay . . .
. . . when she arrives home from work, I help her undress so that we may cuddle and that I may listen attentively to what she has to say and how she feels about, well, everything . . .
. . . when it's time to shower, I insist that she goes first, so as to enjoy the hottest water and so that I may clean the shower when we're done. (Be sure to watch till the end of the video to see how I do my work.) It's the little things that keep a marriage zesty . . .
. . . and I even allow her to do everything around the house exactly the way she wants. After all, what she likes, I like . . .
So with all that going for me, how could I possibly leave my woman for a mere fictional character?
BEKKA BITES BIG-TIME
I'm proud to announce today that friend and blogmate Rebecca Cantrell's splendid new book, iDrakula, is hitting the nation's bookstores.
I got to peek at the galley a couple months ago, when she was in Chicago to promote her other book, A Night of Long Knives. I was blown away with the coolness of the premise: a modern retelling of Bram Stoker's classic using only text messages, emails and web browsers. Booklist was wild about it, and this book/app/multimedia hydra is going to get eyepopping reviews, I predict. That she gave me the honor of making the official announcement raises my coolness factor by 20 points.
Well, 10, anyway ...
She's writing this under the name Bekka Black, and you can read more about it at www.bekkablack.com. Please enjoy.
When Shane Gericke isn't anointing his wife's feet with precious oils and herbs, he's hanging out at www.shanegericke.com. He'd love you to come visit and check out his latest thriller, Torn Apart, but only if that would make you happy. After all, dear reader, Shane is here for you.
