I am over the moon to be taking part in the Fiction Addiction Book Tours Cover Revel for How Not To Murder Your Grumpy by Carol E Wyer today. Carol is a lovely lady and a brilliant author and her books are always guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Thanks so much for joining me today Carol. It's an absolute pleasure to have you as my guest.
This is what Carol said about her Grumpy
Grumpy old men are fractious and irritating at times, but they are also hilarious. Mine comes out with some wonderful lines that crack me up.
Last week we were sitting outside a cafe when a group of rather fit looking male cyclists pulled up and sat at the table in front of us. Mr G continued to enjoy the warmth of the sun that was beating down on his face and kept one beady eye on me. I was gawping at the men, of course.
One of the men, dressed in appropriate lycra had some sponsorship writing on his cycling kit - Derby Mercury.
Mr G cast a look in my direction:
“More Freddie than Derby,” he commented wryly. “He should also have ‘I Want to Break Free’ written on the front of his tight leggings.”
What can you say? Mr G turned away smiling quietly at his own wit and let the sun play on his face. I sniggered like a silly schoolgirl. The men, oblivious to our comments ate flapjacks and talked about the thrill of racing.
What lines has your Grumpy come out with recently that has earned him a guffaw from you? He can’t be all misery.
