Teaser Tuesday... The Best Man

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here's mine.
Well, She had to pee, anyway.  Terror did that to her.  Going into the stall, she unwound her sweater- the Microfiber Slim-Nation undergarment (try saying that five times fast) required that she practically strip naked to use the bathroom and wrestled up her undergarment.  The martinis, while relaxing and excellent, didn't help ... Men never had to deal with this,Faith thought.  Men didn't hide in bathrooms and wrestle microfiber and pantyhose.

As she yanked the Microfiber Slim-Nation undergarment back in position, she reached for her sweater-so complicated! She got one arm in, couldn't find the other one, groped, missed... and all of a sudden, hear the roar of the child-sucking toilet.  There was a tug on her arm, and Faith staggered back, watching in horror as her sweater peeled off and disappeared halfway down the toilet, one black arm dangling out like a dead snake.

Goodness. There is a lesson in there somewhere, dear Irene. For me it is, don't read that book.
