Six Sentence Sunday - 12/5/10



Here are six again from Playing For Keeps (woman sportswriter/pro football player)

Going back to chapter 1. Here my heroine Samantha Jameson (yes I named her after my favorite Irish Whiskey - LOL) is war correspondent turned sportswriter. She waiting to interview the players in the locker room. She knows one of them from college and here is what she is thinking/remembering....

Ryan Terell. The thought of him evoked vivid memories.
Shoulder length hair falling in waves like rumpled satin, eyes the color of a fairy tale forest, and hands made for more than catching passes. Much more. Sure, great packaging, but underneath the chiseled exterior was a man who hadn't socially evolved from dragging his knuckles on the ground. If only he worked as hard on his interior.

  7. I loved the "eyes the color of a fairy tale forest" that was just great. He may be the caveman type but , hey, sometimes they are worth the trouble. Oh and I love the picture of the guy with the balls (sorry-couldn't resist)
