Theme Thursdays

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
    Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.
This week's theme is 

SMILE (Laugh, Grin, Giggle, Guffaw, etc)


 My smile comes from the book Waiting for Karl Rove by Kat Nove and Jeni Decker.

"Hahahahaha. It's the Lifties. Mom stole hers at Wal-Mart, but I paid for these babies. Pretty amazing, eh?Especially considering my tits would be swinging somewhere in the vicinity of my bellybutton without them."

and a second one

Despite my fear that Deputy Dawg would appear out of nowhere with a cattle prod, I snorted with laughter. "How does someone break their crotch?"

Hope you got a laugh. What is yours? Leave a comment with your link so we can check it out! If you aren't blogging Thursdays Theme, please play along and leave your quote in your comment. Thanks!

lol, i'm laughing because i remember my grandma was putting on her bra and and my son burst in her room excited about telling her something, looked and immediately he left out while saying,i;m sorry granny, (he was four) a few weeks after that, a commercial came on and this lady was showing before and after pic of her body basically breast, after surgery. the lady say, see my boobs are no longer to my belly, my son looks up quickly and says in a low tone; 'oh no, granny got to have surgery too. lol
