"Making the world a better place, one book at a time."

sometimes she just fakes

Yep, it’s true. Guys, don’t let it go to your…um…head. But sometimes, we just fake it. It’s not that we don’t love you…I’m sure we do. Or at least, we must like you a lot if we even bothered, right? But every now and then, we just pretend. Don’t look at me like that, we have our reasons. And don’t even try telling me you’d know the difference, because I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t. It’s been proven!

Haven’t you seen When Harry Met Sally?

Surely, even if you haven’t seen the movie, you’ve at least heard of the infamous scene where Meg Ryan demonstrates to Billy Crystal (and an entire diner full of people) how a woman can effectively fake…you know…*whispers* an orgasm.

Sorry guys, but we’ve all done it…at least once.

And it was that statement that got me in trouble this evening. After an interesting discussion about book/movie characters and their amazing talents, I made the mistake of dropping that bombshell on my poor unsuspecting husband. It was immediately followed by him saying (quite confidently), “You’ve never faked it with me.”

Um…(cue the shy smile and the corresponding look of horror.) Oops? It was just that one time…honest.

You would think I’d just spoiled Christmas.

How do I get myself into these things? I should have just smiled and stayed quiet. Men the world over would have been none the wiser…right?

Sure…that’s what I thought.

Until the next time…I’ll be digging out my copy of When Harry Met Sally...and burning it!
