August 11th is almost here! Two snippets until The Nesting Habits of Strange Birds is released, and here’s one of them.
I don’t want to leave you guys in suspense—Phil goes to see Lee’s band play and afterward they go for coffee. They’re walking to stash Lee’s bass in his car; the first line is Lee’s.
“So, what’d you think of the music?”
Phil shivered with the effort to keep from laughing out loud. “It was horrible.”
Lee made a loud questioning sound and turned to walk sideways beside Phil. “You’d better be smiling when you say that.”
“Oh, I w-was.”
“It was pretty horrible, wasn’t it?” Lee sounded so proud.
Thanks for reading!

Funny. I’d like to “hear” this band.
Thanks for commenting, Alexis. Not sure if you’d be happy hearing that particular band, though. They take garage nu metal to new lows. 🙂
awww what a “sweet” moment… that dialogue is fun. I can imagine Lee with a large, sarcastic grin there
Thanks, Joelle! 🙂
I love the sense of fun in this! I think I’m going to like these characters.
Well, I can understand Phil’s interest as I like bad movies that are so bad they’re funny. Will be interesting to see what this scene evolves into.
LOL thank goodness he didn’t take offense. And congrats on the upcoming release, Charley. I get to share it with you! My new novella comes out the same day. 🙂
I can’t wait to read this, Charley! I love these two already. 🙂
OK that was quite amusing and as someone else said, makes me want to go to youtube and hear this band myself LOL. Great 8!
Makes me think of my young cousin’s first band and… oy vey! Very cute snippet. The dialogue is so free and easy and really helps to define the characters. Nicely done.
Nice piece of dialogue. It’s very crisp and very real.
Love your fun banter between these two.
