I've reached the point of pre-travel stress where I am painfully aware of the many things I need to do before I go, but if I try to spend too much time looking at my To Do list, I get deeply tired and need a nap. I had a bunch of things I was going to get done last night, and all I managed to do was take a bath. Ugh.
Anyway, back to this book:
"'Yes, but where are the moms?' Beth asked.
Lindsey shrugged. Clearly, Beth was working up to something, and Lindsey was just going to have to be patient.
'They're at his story time," Beth said. 'And why?'
'I don't know. Why?'
'Because he is freaking gorgeous,' Beth said. Then she thunked her head down on Lindsey's desk as if she had expended the very last bit of energy in her soul. 'He's like the Ryan Gosling of youth services. I want to die.'"
It's "let's match Beth up with someone" time, isn't it? Beth's going to investigate her competition further, butt heads with him, and then one of them's going to end up asking the other out.
Seriously, though, I'm not entirely sure this situation makes sense. Okay, so the moms think he's hot. But would they really be willing to drive out of their way to go to a story time in a completely different town when there's an excellent story time in the town they live in?
