HB: What’re we going to talk about today?
SPAL: Don’t know, but you need to leave me alone right now. I’m busy.
HB: Doing what?
SPAL: A book review.
HB: What’s that?
SPAL: It’s like telling a story.
HB: I want to hear the story? I like stories. Mummsy tells me stories. Tell me. Tell me.
SPAL: Go away.
HB: No! I want a story. Tell me the story. (He jumps on SPAL)
SPAL: You’re such a hair ball.
HB: You’re a pansy. Story! Story! Story!
SPAL: Okaaaaay. (He growls)
HB: (He smiles)
SPAL: Let me tell you about three characters. Riley, Michael, and Brenda.
HB: Okay. Okay. (He claps his front paws together)
SPAL: Riley is an eighteen year old girl with special powers. She can do telekinesis, read minds, and has dreams of past lives. She also has premonitions.
SPAL: Shh…you’re going to mess up the story.
SPAL: Anyway, Riley dreams about a man. Well, more than one. They’re all the same one because they all have the same eyes. Her dreams are about her past lives.
HB: Sounds like she had a lot of boyfriends.
SPAL: Shh…Back to the story. Anyway, she meets this guy named Michael at college the first day. He about runs her over. She looks at him and he her. Kapowy. It’s love at first sight. And, he’s got the same eyes the men in her dreams have.
HB: Does he hump her?
SPAL: No. (He crinkles up his nose) The boy has manners. Something you don’t. He’s a real gentleman. Unlike you. In fact, he and Riley fall in love. I think I already said that, though.
HB: Who’s Brenda? Is she a humper?
SPAL: For the most part, yes, but she does worse things than hump. She comes between Riley and Michael. She’s got special powers, too.
SPAL: She doesn’t leave them alone. She’s like a flee. She’s hard to get rid off.
HB: I don’t like flees. They make me itch. What else? Do Riley and Michael hump in the end and live happily ever after? Do they use essential oils to get rid of Brenda? Since she’s a flee.
SPAL: (He rolls his eyes). Let’s get this straight. There’s. No. Humping. In. The. Book. It’s a sweet love story with an evil person trying to tare two people apart. But, Riley’s special powers save the day. That’s all I’m telling you.
HB: How does Riley’s special powers save the day?
SPAL: You need to read it yourself. You can find it at Smashwords and Amazon. Mummsy bought it for a $1.19. It’s an e-book. You can only read it on the computer or Kindle, a Nook, and other devices like that.
HB: Did you like the book?
SPAL: Of course I did, stupid. It deserves as many stars as there are in the night sky. And, there’s two more books that go with it. I’ll tell you about one next week.
HB: Do they hump it in that one?
SPAL: (Covers his face and looks down, shaking his head).
