Lately she’d felt dried up, dustier than a ghost town in an old Western movie. The swinging saloon doors of her nether portal were rusted shut from lack of use. In other words, Miss Kitty hadn’t seen any action in a long, long time.
And now, because she’d decided to rectify the situation, she, Marla Jean Bandy, found herself sitting in the front seat of a Ford pick-up truck with Donny Joe Ledbetter’s hand stuck halfway up her skirt.
But it didn’t feel right somehow, and that really pissed her off.
Libby seduced him with the Russian classics, challenging him to stretch his mind and feed his soul. He tackled Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Brodsky, Pushkin, and eventually he tackled Ms. Comstock, too. The fact that he’d left her for someone twenty years older, frumpier, smarter, and fluent in five languages was something she’d never forgive him for.
But back to Donny Joe. He was a stud. A big fish in a small pond. A lover of all things female, and his ability to make the earth move was heralded far and wide by most every woman in and around Everson, Texas.
ARE YOU ROCKIN’ & A ROLLIN' with the Q&A?
ANGI: What’s the first book you remember reading?
MOLLY: I was reading before I started school. It must have been my sister’s first grade reader. I didn’t understand why Dick and Jane were running all the time and why I had to see it.
ANGI: What’s your favorite “love” word?
MOLLY: My favorite love word is “Wuv”. As in, I wuv you, sweetie pie, sugar pea, butter noodle. Man, how hot is a hero who talks baby talk? No?
ANGI: Can you tell us about a real-life hero you’ve met?
MOLLY: When our house burned down the firefighters and Red Cross volunteers were super heroes as far as I was concerned. And all our friends and family that stepped in to help were heroes, too.
ANGI: What’s your favorite fairy tale?
MOLLY: I always loved the Ugly Duckling. I remember as a child, my sisters and I sang about the poor little fellow at shows we performed at orphanages. Quack, Quack. That was my part. I like stories of transformation and acceptance. And any day now I expect to turn into a swan.
ANGI: What’s your favorite cartoon character?
MOLLY: All the characters on The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Sherman and Mr. Peabody, Natasha and Boris, Dudley Do-Right. Fractured Fairytales.
ANGI: What turns you off like nothing else?
MOLLY: Laughter at another person’s expense.
ANGI: What sound or noise do you love?
MOLLY: I enjoy the sound of a back-up alarm. I always go beep-beep-beep along with it just for fun.
ANGI: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
MOLLY: Gypsy. Natalie Wood, Rosalind Russell. Alas, my plans to be in Burlesque didn’t pan out.
ANGI:Fairy Tale or Action Adventure?
MOLLY: Fairy Tale
ANGI: What was the first story you remember writing?
MOLLY: It involved a raisin telling a story to a bunch of grapes. They were his grandchildren.
ANGI: Who’s your favorite villain?
MOLLY: Mags Bennett in the Justified TV series. That woman was creepy!
ANGI: Shucks, I was sworn to secrecy.
