NYEC Rule: A good sense of humor (this post is part of a series of post at The New Year’s Eve Club http://www.facebook.com/ThenewYearsEveClub where the post cover the items on The List)
In SARAH’S COWBOY, Sarah says: “When our New Year’s Eve Club made our new List and made a pact to find our man by next New Year’s, all I had planned was to find a little adventure. Taking a job teaching on a western film set got me more than I imaged with stuntman Kit Stewart. Right away he hit some of the items on the List.
One of the items on our List was a GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR, and Kit, with his lighthearted outlook on life and his job, made me laugh.”
EXCERPT: Thank goodness she agreed to let him take her to dinner on his motorcycle.
She came out with a jacket and he handed her one of the motorcycle helmets. With a curious glance she said, “I’ve not been on a motorcycle before.”
“Don’t worry,” he took her hand other hand, “I have.”
She sniffed. “I certainly hope so.”
Damn, but she didn’t cut him any slack. He liked that. Talking with her kept him on his toes.
They reached the parking lot. “I don’t know anything about motorcycles,” Sarah said as she stopped next to the bike.”
He ran his hand along the tank, “This is a BMW R 1100 RS. It was my first major purchase.” He pulled his helmet on, and taking her from her hand, put it on her head, fastening the chin strap.
He threw his leg over the bike. “See,” he pointed, “you get on behind me, rest your feet on these pegs.”
She settled behind him. “What now?” She sounded a little hesitant.
“Put your arms around my waist.”
Her hand sliding around his belt made him tighten his grip on the handlebars. Then she leaned forward, pressing against all the way from his shoulder to his butt. “This,” she said just south of his left ear, “is just a trick to get me next to you, isn’t it?”
Laughing he patted her hand where is rested at his waist. “Honey, riding double on a motorcycle with a woman is the most fun a man can have with a woman on the wrong side of him.”
He punched the starter and the bike rumbled to life as Sarah laughed.
Dear Reader: For Sarah, a sense of humor was important. How high would a sense of humor rate on your list of qualities for a special someone?
