Birds With Broken Wings
A lovely bookstore owner asked me why she should read this book?I explained that in writing this book, I undertook a purposeful investigation leading where angels (and all good Baptists) fear to tread. It was during this attempt at explanation the picture formed in my mind of addressing an auditorium full of women.
"My opening remark to them is: 'Women hunger and thirst for romance. What is it that men want?"
The entire audience responds with a resounding chorus in unison with one word: 'SEX!"
I then ask: 'No, really ladies, what do men really want?"
Again, with a single voice the chorus returns, loudly: 'SEX!"
Seeing that I am getting nowhere fast I decide to try a new tack. I ask: 'Please, ladies, as a Romantic, a Poet, what do I, as a man, want?"
Back it comes: 'SEX!" There is a definite mind set at work here.
Okay, honestly, as a Romantic, a Poet, what do I want from a woman: SEX! Satisfied?
"But my admission of common guilt is only true to a point. Believe it or not, ladies, some men like myself want romance as much as you do. It is in searching for this elusive thing that I have discovered so much that betrays you ladies in the very areas you are supposed to excel in the romance department. I treat the causes and results of such betrayal in this book.
