The Feminine Side

Normally on Sunday we do beginnings. Instead, today – this little bit from Heart of Barkness, the brand-new (USA Today bestselling) Chet and Bernie (in the previous scene, Chet found himself wading in a fountain he’d only intended to drink from):

“Logically,” Bernie said as we drove away from the church, the shotgun seat possibly a little on the damp side, “we should be looking into Adele’s whereabouts on the night of the murder. But I’m just not feeling it, Chet. Is that the feminine side of me?”

What was this? Feminine side of Bernie? I’d never been so baffled. Feminine Bernie? Was it possible we’d been partners all this time and I’d missed something like that? I gave him a real good sniff and –

“Hey, Chet, knock it off!”

– and detected not a trace of feminine. He was one hundred percent male, practically as male as me. So what was going on?

    We are definitely enjoying the book here in Chevy Chase, a little more than half-way through here (with me reading it aloud to Debbie and Teddy on a nightly basis). Loved the feminine side scene too. And young Theodore greatly appreciated the shout out (no real spoiler here) to his favorite president and namesake in the book.

    The Giant has never been accused of having a feminine side. Neither have we, come to that.

    Hello All–Well, ditto, although I certainly have a feminine side (and proud of it). So nice to have C and B back.

    In response to yesterday’s posts, my only strong moon landing memory was of being in a parent’s car at night during that time, and seeing the moon out (and knowing the Eagle had landed) I expected to see little ant-like dots moving around on the surface.I would be embarrassed(sp?) to have you know how old I was before I realized why I hadn’t seen any evidence…
