Just like Sydney does with Levia in the story, Gary often has trouble getting my attention when I’m reading (or writing). Like Sydney he sometimes resorts to drastic measures – though thankfully rather different ones!
Maybe it’s wrong to laugh at my own jokes, but I giggled as I typed out Sydney’s attempts to make his wife swoon. Oddly enough, Gary looks concerned when I laugh and type simultaneously. Perhaps I should stop telling him he’s my inspiration?
