Romance is frequently funny, even when it doesn’t mean to be. Humor is an important element in life and in books, movies, TV etc. So, this week give me something funny. As always the source is up to you.
Here is an excerpt from my unnamed WIP. This is my hero’s mother discussing him with her cousin.
After taking a sip, Eunice said, “He’s not yet out of his twenties and a dead bore. Which would not have made his father at all happy. When I think of the larks he kicked up before we were married, well Merton should be having the same type of fun. I did have great expectations when Merton came on the Town that he’d do something to create a stir, but my hopes were dashed. Even his mistresses are dull.”
Another burble of laugher escaped Grace.
“Go ahead and laugh, my dear,” Eunice sighed. “You cannot imagine what a depressing sight it was. The woman was dressed like a governess.”
