I looked up from the page like the leaf went from chlorophyll to anthocyanin before my eyes.
My first reaction was to spill hot coffee on his lap. The New Oxford American Dictionary defines lap as the flat area between the waist and the knees of a seated person. Well, I’m pretty sure his flat area wasn’t so flat anymore and needed some scalding to calm it down.
But fortunately for him, I gently closed his novel, quietly said I’m not comfortable going over his books anymore and immediately removed myself from the table.
I should have known this is what he was setting up from day one when he asked me how old I was. He said I looked 17. Is it illegal for someone under 18 to proof-read an over the 18-year-old author’s book? I’m 21, by the way. Then when he asked me do I have a boyfriend. If I did, would it be considered cheating if I read another man’s book? I hope my future boyfriend isn’t that jealous. Geez!
He did pay me each time I went over his book. That was 3 times. That was $60. But now I’m doing a 180 because he wants a body part that’s not the eyes and the finger. Yeah, sometimes I read with my finger. Fuck you!
I told my blogging buddy about this. You know what this fake ex-favorite blogging unfamiliar person said? He texted me, “Well, he’s not a stranger, anymore.” I reply, “Wheet?! Are you trying to say we went on 3 dates at the coffee shop and I need to give him some? You men! You know what? I’m punishing you! I’m not gone text you back for 3 weeks because I’m a Capricorn and sometimes we don’t communicate. And this is gonna drive your Gemini ass insane. Haha! And the next time I ask you how to make some quick money besides stripping, say stripping, and not some lame stuff like, “Partner up with me on a YouTube channel.” You know damn well you can’t make money making videos on YouTube, you lame! And if I did sell my body to that grandpa just know I will charge him an arm and a leg, okay, okay, okayyyyyyy. Now boy bye!”
P.S. Yes, it’s that damn good!
