Excerpt from Nineteen Seventy Something
"Oh, I'm sure she had no secrets with this white tank top over her hot, wet body!" She wadded the shirt up and tossed it over her shoulder like a basketball.

I growled under my breath and pointed a finger toward the big man.
"So Rusty, is this how you're going to spend your Saturday night...sandwiched between two old girlfriends?"
"Umm, give me a minute, okay?" I watched as he turned to get back into the Gran Torino.
