Sometimes research can be embarassing

Yesterday my friend and fellow writer as well as artist Lisa stopped by. She showed me the drawing of the beautiful glass art she is going to make for me. I am really looking forward to seeing it when it is completed.

Beyond that we talked about our current writing works in progress. This is typical of us when we get together and it's always helpful and interesting. As we talked we discussed the research we have to to do. Lisa's was particularly interesting because one of the pieces of information she needed we don't think you can find in a book.

Now, if you're a sensitive soul you might want to turn your head or you'll blush.

Here's the question: If you're the hero in a book and you need to either prevent yourself from getting um. . .excited, hard, what do you do?

Or another version of the same question: What if you're already in an erect state? How do you, uh, deflate the situation?

Whatever help you can provide us would be helpful not to just Lisa and I but I'm sure to other writers as well. Thanks.

I have been told -- think of dead puppies or refocus your thoughts to your mother. Does that help? Sick minds obviously.

ew! Dead puppies?

Ok - the mother thing makes sense.

Think of the wife, kids, mother, and if necessary think of the reason of your erect state as your sister and if you still have the same stiff problem than really you have bigger problems than your hormonal situation.

Stephanie,

That was great! Totally cracked me up.

An old flame once told me he calculates hexadecimals!

Denise December 2, 2009 at 8:33 PM  

Michelle,

Hexadecimals? Is this why he is an ex? :-)

No! Actually a man who can calculate hexadeciminals in his head is kinda hot!.... in a 'The Big Bang Theory' kinda way ;P
