Teaser Tuesday, Nov 23

Teaser Tuesdays are a weekly book-themed meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be careful of spoilers! Don't ruin the book to others by revealing important plot developments. (So the last words of a dying central character are probably not okay...)
  • Share the title and the author of the book as well, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can look up the book and add it to their TBR list.
Here's our teaser for this week:
Whether it's the menace of having such desperately low chances of marriage that it's time to invest in antiterrorist gear, or the promise of Fabulous-Crazy-Blissful that has all reasonably married people wondering what's wrong with them for not feeling Fabulous-Crazy-Blissful, both predicaments raise the bar to such untenable heights that finding a man or staying with one in sustained ecstasy seems as laborious as having sex while skydiving.
What French Women Know by Debra Olliver, p. 102

  1. Sounds interesting -- I'm especially wondering about that anti-terrorist gear. Do confirmed bachelor(ettes) have a higher tendency to go into the gendarmes?

  2. It's about the old "statistics" that a woman in her 40's is more likely to be killed in a terrorist attack than getting married, or something like that. A whole bunch of doodaa nonetheless, it was.
