"Coitus Interruptus"

Eight chapters completed in the sequel to to Steve the Penguin! The tentative title of the second novel is now Bianca Reagan: Where The Action Is. An excerpt from Ch. 03:

SandyBeachGirl99: my nephew's birthday party wasn’t that bad. most of Mormon people were nice.

DannyOcean1112: we usually are

SandyBeachGirl99: it was more the not fitting in with my own family

SandyBeachGirl99: they moved to a new town without telling me

SandyBeachGirl99: not to mention the wedding they had 15 years ago without inviting me

DannyOcean1112: do you really want to play the Compare Families game?

SandyBeachGirl99: you win every time

DannyOcean1112: sister was in the pokey. brother with the gambling addiction. both still on probation, wondering what to do with their little ones at home

DannyOcean1112: now my sister is back on house arrest with the ankle bracelet.

DannyOcean1112: can you beat that?

SandyBeachGirl99: let me think. no.

SandyBeachGirl99: but I still wish I could be closer to my niece, considering she only lives an hour away

DannyOcean1112: you are making an effort. I know your niece appreciates it.

SandyBeachGirl99: I’m taking her and her friend to see a movie next month. the remake of Dance ‘til Dawn

DannyOcean1112: that TV movie from the 80s?

SandyBeachGirl99: yep, but this time it’s on the big screen, starring the usual suspects from every teen show on the primetime lineup. I think we’ll have a good time.

DannyOcean1112: well there you go. you’re the fun aunt

DannyOcean1112: i don’t get to be the fun uncle. i’m the responsible one. i am the one stable role model my nieces and nephews have.

SandyBeachGirl99: I know they appreciate you.

SandyBeachGirl99: hold on. phone call.

SandyBeachGirl99: talk amongst yourself

DannyOcean1112: give me a topic

SandyBeachGirl99: Rhode Island is neither a road, nor an island. Discuss.
