Never Talk About Love Scenes When Your Dad Is In the Room!


Ack! I had no idea what I would blog about today, so I went to hubby for suggestions. He thought I should blog about how difficult it is to write a love scene. Especially since I refuse to write about love scenes based on our (ahem) private moments. So I decided I would blog about why love scenes aren't usually based on reality.

1. I have never, nor have I ever wanted to make love all night long.
2. I have never felt like a volcano ready to erupt.
3. I have never felt like I was riding on the crest of a wave.
4. It never occured to me to think of my husband's kisses as "our tongues doing a dance as old as time itself."

My father walked into the room while hubby and I was having this conversation. When he heard my list of "I've nevers" he looked at hubby and said, "You and I need to have a talk. Maybe I can give you some pointers."

I almost choked on my crandberry juice. Ew! Really? Thanks, Dad, but hubby doesn't need any help. And again. Ew!

  4. This is a great post! Once I was watching a romance movie and the characters were making love in a cave and the ocean swept in and out while they were doing it (as if!) and my dad walked through the room. He looked at the TV, looked at me and said, "Hunh. They're doing the nasty." And he just kept walking. Very embarrassing.

  5. Yeah, my dad is a pretty funny guy. I wish my mom had been downstairs to hear him. That would have been hilarious!

  6. LOL, that's too cute!

    My dad told a story for years about how he rescued a woman he knew from a motel room after she about set the place on fire after falling asleep with a burning cigarette. Now, I'd heard it for years and years, and some years after I was married, the light finally dawned on me. "Why were you at the motel with some other woman?" I finally asked, knowing this was way before he'd met my mom.

    Mom smiled, waiting for him to get himself out of that one.

    My dad grinned his usual beady-eyed, evil-looking grin and said, "She was just lucky I was driving by at the time."

    LOL. I loved my dad! He was the world's greatest character!

  7. Lol, Terry! I don't know why we sometimes think our dad's didn't have a life before they met our mothers.

  11. Too funny! You should have listened to that conversation, maybe got some new material from your dad. But at the risk of having your brain disintegrate? Maybe not.
