Be my lovebug

"The Brazen Bug-blesser"

New Words: 529
Total Words: 1,499
Deadline: February 29, 2008
Reason for stopping: Need to figure out exactly how to distract our dear Josephine long enough for a termite to bite her hand. No, really. I mean that.
Stimulants: A diet snapple, w00t
Songs played loudly: "Nth Degree" by Morningwood
Exercise: Going for a quick walk, right now!
Mail: No snail mail on Sundays, and no e-mail yet but I should be hearing back soonish from some markets
Darling du Jour: Josephine studied the sheet of paper. A list of design features and technically advantageous modifications covered the paper's length, prices printed small next to each item. Mood organs, phosphorous ticklers, eagle eye lenses, voice mockers, rainbow-swirl skins. She could afford none of them, certainly not yet.
Mean Things: Breaking a woman's heart, evil bugs lurking in corners, liars
Words that Microsoft Word argues with: lovebug
Other writing-related work: Nothing, though my mind is slowly drifting back to the Novel
The Internet is full of Things: NO TIME PEOPLE!

Josephine gave a little start as she heard the mail slot in her door slap close. The mailman was early today she thought as she stared at the small pile of letters. She was in the middle of wondering what was in her mail when the termite bit her hand.

There. She's distracted.

Wow! That might work except she's not at home, but in a stranger's house in a time period when mail is not delivered like so! But you gave it a good try.
