Embracing the Ordinary:Lessons From the Champions of Everyday Life Michael Foley
Laura is an English teacher who earns extra money giving private lessons. She is also a smoking hot cougar whos tired of men her age and looking for a cub. But right now needs to work as much as possible to make ends meet. Laura gets an opportunity to work and play when the father of her student Max makes her an offer. Max is a virgin and Laura is paid to give him some very sexy private lessons. ----- Excerpt ----- So what does that have to do with now? I asked. Max is in the same exact spot and he needs to learn to be with a woman. He looked away, took a deep breath then asked, Laura would you be willing to teach him? I stared at him, was he serious? He was avoiding making eye contact with me which told me this probably wasnt a joke, if it was he would be watching for my reaction, not looking everywhere else. He then sealed it when he said softly, Ill pay you. Are you kidding? I blurted out, What do you think I am; a whore? No, no! He put his hands out in a calming gesture, Im sorry, I know how it sounds, but I dont really mean it that way. You just offered to pay me to have sex with your son. I threw my hands up, Whos barely a man. Eighteen is barely a man. Hes twenty and lets face it; you didnt mind flaunting your tits to him, now did you? I know I just asked something out of the ordinary of you, but dont get so puffed up, you were teasing him and loving it. He pointed, So am I really that far off in asking? Ouch. I nodded, Okay, you got me, but teasing and doing are different and Im his tutor, been doing that for almost three years, I know him. Thats the point. He said quietly, You know him, he likes you, and hes comfortable with you. It wouldnt be like my old man dumping me off with a stranger. Max would trust you. And Id be earning that trust. I rolled my eyes. Remember, I was watching and it wasnt just Max that looked like he was ready to lose it, the look on your face was straight out of one of those porns he watches. I know sex isnt everything. Ive never been a player or womanizer and I dont want him to be one either, but he lost out on a lot of fun in High school and hes going into his second year of colleges and still a virgin! Come on, you remember college, think of the fun hes missing! These are the best years of his life and hes pissing them away because hes nervous. He laughed, Come on, help the kid out! I admit Ive thought about younger guys in general lately, but Max is different. Only because youre afraid to lose the job. Richard smiled, And that will not happen, trust me. So say I did this. I seduce him; show him what hes missing. Then we just go back to talking about English composition? Ill be done as his teacher, I would have to be. Only if you want to. He said, And what if I told you I have two people on the hook that need a tutor; I can get you more work. So if you wanted to quit here youd be fine. You really think Id do this? What if he says something? Hes a kid, hell brag. He wont because youll tell him real men dont kiss and tell. Thats one of his lessons; if you have sex with a girl you have a better chance of more if you dont run your mouth. You still assume Id do it for money. Laura. He grinned, I know people, I make money knowing people. You broke up with Jeff awhile back and thats when you started really teasing Max. You just said youve been thinking about young guys. He grinned as I frowned, and continued, You commented you havent had much of a life lately. All that adds up to you being frustrated and looking to ease that frustration. Im offering you a chance to do that and help out Max at the same time. How magnanimous of you. I muttered. Oh, and theres your current financial woes as well. Reaching into his shirt pocket he removed a wad of hundred dollar bills and held them up to me. One thousand dollars... He paused and looking me in the eye added, Per lesson.
In its innovative magazines and books, Flow celebrates creativity, mindfulness, and the pleasures of paper through a uniquely appealing marriage of ideas and visuals--beautiful illustrations and paintings created by a group of talented professional artists. Now those same artists have opened up their toolkits, sharing secrets, techniques, and point of view to teach the creatively curious how to draw. Here are 50 easy, illustrated step-by-step lessons on how to draw a whimsically curated list of the things we see and interact with every day: a bouquet of flowers, a watering can, a cat, mittens, favorite plants and vegetables, a cup and saucer, a kitchen table, fruit wrappers, a seagull, a dress collar, an apple tree. The lessons take us line by line from early sketch to finished drawing, with space alongside for the reader to draw the same. And unlike other beginner´s drawing guides, every lesson stems from each artist´s particular sensibility. This book is not about learning shapes, but how to create beautiful images with quirkiness and personality. The focus is not on perspective or shading, but the mindful pleasures of doing creative work. Included are special paper goodies, from the instructional (sheets of tracing paper, watercolor paper, colored paper for a singular effect) to the purely joyful--postcards, a 32-page booklet with bellyband, paper doll foldouts, and more.
