Example text

If anybody can make you squirm, it舗s Mama. She has elevated stark raving silence to an art. 舠I told him to stay for the party. 舡 Which is one of the many reasons I separated from Jack Jones. He could be a deep-cover assassin for all I know. 舠You shouldn舗t have invited him, Mama. 舡 舠Really, Callie. Everbody knows you舗re still in love with him. 舡 I open the bathroom door. 舠Mama, do you mind? 舡 Ignoring the door, she stations herself in front of my bathroom mirror and inspects her hair. 舡 Naturally not.

With impersonators swarming all over the gift shop, the museum, the chapel, and the shotgun house where the King was born, Lovie and I are sitting beside the fountain taking a breather and eating Hershey舗s bars. 舡 Lovie pats her ample thighs. 舡 I look like a swizzle stick. Especially beside Lovie. And especially since Jack left and my appetite went down the drain. All arms and coltish-looking legs and big brown eyes. Chest flat as a flitter. Mama has the classy movie star looks of a past-her-prime Katharine Hepburn while Lovie has the glamour and lush beauty of Rita Hayworth.

I could slap him. 舠Well, I do. There are plenty of people at this party to question first without him trying to put my niece on the hot seat. If he knows what舗s good for his next election campaign, he舗ll treat the Valentines with a little respect. 舡 Grinning, George salutes Mama, then hurries off to do her bidding. 舡 舠Oh, was something up? 舡 She prisses off with a tray, all flouncy ruffles and big attitude. I wouldn舗t dye her hair Marilyn Monroe blond if you took away my Jimmy Choo sling-backs.
