Do You Think He Likes Me?

By Tiffany, of Tracy Weber’s Downward Dog Mystery series

Hey there, nice to meet you!  I’m Tiffany! What do you think of my new outfit?  No, it’s not a skirt, silly. It’s a skort!  More specifically, it's a yoga skort.  I’m here at Some Like It Hot Yoga with Kate Davidson, the yoga teacher/sleuth in A Fatal Twist.  Kate and I aren’t friends, exactly.  In fact, I don’t think she likes me all that much. I didn’t like her either, but she did me a solid a few months ago.  If she’d pressed charges when she caught me breaking into her car, I’d have gone back to jail for sure! Sure, I’ve been her slave ever since, but I don’t mind helping her out at the yoga studio.  It gives me an excuse to buy a whole new wardrobe.  Who knew yoga clothes were so stylin’!

Anyway, I owed her one. So when Kate asked me to pretend to be her life partner while she went undercover as a patient at a fertility clinic, how could I say no?

 OK, you caught me.  The “two girls searching for a sperm donor” ruse wasn’t Kate’s idea; it was mine. 

But in my defense, I didn’t have much trouble convincing her to play along.  I had no idea we’d end up taking a hot yoga class as part of the charade.  Luckily, I was already dressed for the occasion.  Kate on the other hand … Well let’s just say she's dressed more like a nun than a fitness buff.  I’ve never actually tried yoga before, but how hard can it be?  Kate teaches it, after all, and she’s ancient.  She might even be pushing thirty-five. 

Sorry, I can’t talk anymore. Class is about to start. The instructor just put on his headset. Kate calls him Adonis.  I don’t know what that means, but I have a feeling she’s being sarcastic.  Believe me, he’s gorgeous.  He fills out those tiny yoga shorts in all the right places, if you know what I mean.  I hear he’s going to teach some partner yoga poses today.  Kate (the old prude) isn’t going to like that at all. 

 In fact, there she is, glaring at me from the back of the room. I can practically smell her from here. Who would have thought one woman could sweat that much?

Ooh—Adonis is looking at me.  He smiled!  Do you think he likes me?

  2. My friends and arent really wild and crazy people. We're pretty boring. However, for my 16th birthday (I won't say how many years ago that was) my good friend kidnapped me and took me to a picnic lunch and concert about 200 miles away. It was a great day, and he was a great friend. Dmskrug3 at hotmail dot com

    1. Tracy here--I got kidnapped on my 16th birthday, too. Though I don't think I did anything quite that fun.

  3. My friend and I are genealogists, and we drove miles out in the quiet Florida countryside to visit a family cemetery which took forever to find. We were copying tombstones when an armadillo ran through and scared us.Imagine two middle aged women standing in a cemetery screaming and hugging each other! lkleback@hotmail.com

  4. I was moving--not very far by freeway--so decided to pack the VW bug with boxes and tie the mattress to the top. Ok, are you seeing where this is going? Yes. I drove very carefully on the freeway in the far lane, but the mattress still broke lose and fell on the road. We pulled over quickly and ran back to get it off the road. Cars were a plenty, but everyone seemed to have room to go around the mattress. We got it without any accidents, carried it back to the car, and retied it to the roof. I then drove 10-15 mph on the shoulder till we got to our exit. We made it, vacuumed the mattress, and thanked our lucky stars no cops ever saw us. Then there was the time we went rafting...tying the raft to the top of the same VW bug. Ok, maybe my youth was crazy! (kat8762(at)aol(dot)com)

    1. Tracy again. Oh my! Once when I was moving, I did the same thing. The mattress didn't fly off--it folded in half like a napkin!

  5. One late night my best friend and I snuck onto the golf course to run around the greens. We had a blast rolling down the hills, looking up at the stars, climbing the trees, dancing barefoot. It was all fun and games till the sprinklers came on.

  6. Couple of friends and I decided after work (9 PM) that we wanted authentic Mexican food. We drove from Santa Ana to Tijuana, technically it is a 2 and half hour drive. We made it a bit better than that. Met some people. Good thing the restaurant was an all-nighter. We talked til almost dawn. We all caught the dickens when we got home, a bit after dawn. Got home faster than we went down. But not by much. Good thing no coppers were around. Parents would have gone ballistic if we got a ticket. Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com

  7. My friend and I went to a bar, left at closing time, then went to her ex-boyfriend's house. He was living with his parents at the time, and we woke them all up. It didn't go over too well, but we had a good time. Thank you for this chance.

  8. Going to a party at a friend's house which was in another part of the city but which was interesting. We stayed late and her parents called my house very late as they were worried. This was unnecessary and disturbing since she was the one involved with the party. i did the driving and we were young. She never did take the blame. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

  9. After an out of town weekend wedding and arriving back home at midnight, work beckoned, but the last thing i wanted to do was go to work early the next morning, but I did. I should never have listened to the friend who suggested this out of town celebration. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com
