Teaser Tuesday (30 November)

Last Teaser Tuesday of the month -- they go by so quickly.

"I am Alma Gristede," she said. "I am beautiful."
Well, sir, this took me aback, you may be sure! "Hey," I said, "That's MY line."
"I know," she said. "I was just trying to save time."

I Was a Teenage Dwarf, Max Shulman

"Um, what I said about your decades of experience...I wasn't calling you old or anything." 
"No, of course not. I understand."
"I just mean --"
"I know."
"A little maturity, it's very becoming on a woman."
"Certainly."
"You're definitely still hot."
Deanna threw her a sidelong look. "You'd better believe it, kiddo."

p. 134, Orion's Hounds. (Christopher L. Bennett) Things get a little awkward between Troi and the first officer of the Titan.

  4. Those are two excellent teasers! I read "Teenage Dwarf" waaaaay back when I was a preteen and loved it. I was a big fan of Dobie Gillis, in print and on TV. Very funny stuff!
