Teaser Tuesday (on Monday)

Posted on

 

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesdays  participants can add the book to their To Read Lists if they like your teasers!

They thought if a girl had a ring on her finger she was married, but it is easy as pie for a girl to borrow a ring from a friend or even from her mother, painful as that would be for the mother, or a gold-plated ring from the five-and-dime, and sterling silver rings look like platinum or white gold but a sharp eye can tell silver rings from platinum rings because cheap silver leaves a smudge on the finger and you can tell when you are washing a patient.  These rings you can buy at places are also worn by girls who check into hotels with men or as a protection from mashers who happen to be sitting and watching at nearby tables.

  3. My mother actually told me to buy a pretend ring before ever going to Italy… she had quite an exciting time there when she went… or maybe a bit too exciting!
