 "What music do you choose?" she asked. (It seemed her husband was never going to speak, though he kept his bright bird eyes on me constantly.)
 "Sleeping Beauty," I said meekly, believing the role of Princess Aurora the greatest of all testing pieces in the classical repertory--so why choose a less demanding part? "I can dance The Rose Adagio all alone," I boasted.
 "Wonderful," she said sarcastically. Then added with additional scorn, "I guessed, just by your looks, you would want The Sleeping Beauty."
 That made me wish I'd chosen something lesser.

  6. I hate how people put others down when they're trying to be enthusiastic about something! I feel like the woman's tone might have something to do with how her husband is staring! Thanks for hosting :) I hope you have a great weekend!

  9. Oh goodness! Why would it be assumed that her husband was never going to speak? Is he in a coma? Does he have some sort of disability? Breaks my heart! I'm going to check it out on Goodreads; thanks for sharing Freda! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions.

Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
