Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".
4. Please avoid spoilers!

(When Cassie reluctantly agrees to be an elf for the mall Santa she is given a tiny costume to wear - a short green dress, gold slippers, a Santa-style hat and tiny, size 4 tights that are too small and don't even reach her waist. When she is hoisted into the air in a harness to swing over the crowd at the mall and announce Santa's arrival - disaster strikes...)

Cassie gasped as her tights rolled down, catching on her thighs... The tights slid farther down and everyone in the entire mall seemed to be staring up at her. "I can see the elf's underpants," one little boy called, pointing at her. Suspended above the ground, Cassie watched as several mothers covered their children's eyes.

  3. hahaha, I love it!

    That happened to me at least year's Christmas party (minus the elf part). Thankfully I was able to make a quick exit and waddle to the car before they fell to my ankles.

    Here's my Christmasy teaser.
