Spotlight: The ABC's of Dee by Danielle Bannister
The ABC’s of Dee
The ABC's of Dee
It always starts out so innocent. A drink, a laugh, I bet.
For 40-year-old Dee Harper, her hum-drum life is about to become… educated. When Dee’s wealthy friend, Gail, makes her a ridiculous bet, she never dreams she’ll actually go through with it. After all, dating 26 men in one year, from A-Z, is ludicrous. Right? Then Gail offers her $50,000 if she succeeds. Now that is an offer Dee can’t refuse.
From Adam the cocky limo driver to Kevin the klepto, Dee learns the hard way what sort of guy she doesn’t want and which ones are way out of her league.
Filled to the brim with snark and sarcasm about the joys of dating ‘later in life,’ The ABC’s of Dee reminds us that even though life sometimes sucks, there is always someone we can find to laugh with.
It’s ten minutes to seven and my underwear has already climbed up my ass more times than people have climbed Everest. I would love to blame Victoria’s Secret for selling me faulty ‘3 for $25.00 panties,’ but let’s be honest, I’m the one trying to cram my 40-year-old fanny into underwear meant for people who don’t eat food. They just looked so good on the stark white, half-butt mannequin that I thought they would totally cover the square footage of my backside. I was grossly mistaken.
