You have to let go of your bad feelings. When you get all steamed up, you have to vent. If you let your characters vent steam so they don’t read like little Goody-Two-Shoes, why don’t you allow yourself the same outlet?
Here goes: to whom it may concern.
Your husband is buying you a new car, is he? That’s nice. Going skiing, are you? That’s nice. Having a new kitchen fitted while you’re away, are you? That’s nice.You’ll be eating out at a restaurant where it’s only 55 euro a head, every night? That’s nice.
Ahhhhh, that is SO much better!
