Teaser Tuesday ~ Double Feature




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for un! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers 



I recently read that our personalities are reflected in our snacks of choice.  For instance, potato chips are chose by ambitious, competitive people, whereas tortilla chips are selected by perfectionist who tend to take charge and micromanage.  Conscientious people with high principles tend to scarf cheese curls, and pretzels are the fave crave of the fashionable and trendy.  

Hey, maybe instead of the traditional four personality types (choleric, sanguine, melancholic and phlegmatic), we should switch to tortilla, pretzel, cheese curl, or potato chip.  Women would certainly understand the implications better.

But prayer is not a coin to be inserted in a vending machine, and faith is not a button you push.  God does not submit to our whims and wishes.  No matter how hard seven-year-old Bob prayed for that million dollars, no matter how fervently he believed, he would not have found it under the bed the next morning.  Not because God doesn't love him.  Not because God doesn't answer prayer.  Not even because there was no room under the bed.  The million bucks never came because Bob was not really praying; he was wishing.

Oh, my!! That first one is hilarious!! Is the whole book like that? I'm definitely a potato chip - tortilla person. Right smack in the middle -- and it is so right!

My teaser this week is from ‘Redemption’ by Laurel Dewey.
