Just my luck.

On this mornings news show, there was a segment on a lady who slept with President Kennedy when she was a 19 year old intern and then continued to do so for a year and a half, even when she was engaged to be married to some one else.
I heard this story earlier in the week and thought little of it until this morning wheen I learned she has written a book about her experience.
As an author of 3 books, I was immediately jealous of her instant fame. Not that I want to be famous, I would just like to sell a few books. She will undoubtedly sell more books from that 2 minute interview than I will in the next ten years.
For that reason, I would like that kind of exposure but unfortunately, my books are about everyday, normal life. I never slept with anybody that important. Don’t take that the wrong way.Susie is the light of my my life and very important to me and our children. She just doesn’t have the notoriety that a U.S. President does. For that reason, as well as a few others, You won’t find any sleeping with anybody in my stuff.

Just for spite, I am not going to buy that lady’s book although I am curious as to how she could make a whoole book out of one subject. I suppose, if they were really active and she talked about each instance, she could probably get a hundred pages or so of what to me, would be uninteresting reading. If it was me writing it, I would imagine I could get maybe 20 or 25 pqges, tops.
What does she have to say? Could it be something like this?

“Tonight we tried out the first lady’s bedroom and he promised me that tomorrow night we could do it in the Lincoln bedroom. I wonder if he will wear a top hat and come to think of it, I wonder if old Abe wore one in there? My dad is a big Lincoln fan. I wonder if Mr. President would mind if I take a picture of Abe’s bed to show my dad. Oh, and my mom,as well??
Boy oh boy. My friends are going to be so jealous. I’ll bet my history teacher will be also.”

Sigh.
