We got such a positive response last week that we're continuing with Peggy, one of the three women in I.O.U. SEX who's on a hunt for her high school boyfriend (decades after graduation!)
Setup: Peggy is meeting with private investigator James Hornby, intent on hiring him to find her high school boyfriend.
"How long do you anticipate this search will take?" Peggy cringed at the pleading note that crept into her voice, wondering if Hornby's dismissive looks or the run she'd just noticed in her pantyhose had caused her self-confidence to flee so quickly. She crossed her legs to hide the unsightly tear.
She wished he'd quit clicking that darned pen and fiddling with his frigging Blueberry or Raspberry or whatever it was called. Peggy suppressed the urge to reach across the desk, snatch it out of his hands, and fling it across the room. Instead, she clasped her hands in her lap, her need of the man's services overriding her desire to cram his electronic toy up his nose.
