Teaser Tuesday (03.02.10)

March 1, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser comes from Angels by Marian Keyes. Yes, I went way over the two sentence limit.

As I filled a bucket with floor cleaner and water, Emily sighed, ‘Thanks. Conchita is coming on Monday. I like to have things nice for her.’
‘Who’s Conchita?’
‘My cleaning lady. Comes every fortnight. Goes mad if the place isn’t clean.’ (p. 219)

Of course, that makes total sense, doesn’t it?!

    I love the teaser! Naturally one should clean for the cleaning lady. My TT:

    Funny how most people clean up before…What a fun teaser! I hope you enjoy your reading week..

    Clean up before the housekeeper arrives? Defeats the purpose lol But then again, I’d probably do the same if I’ve known my housekeeper for years :)

    My teaser is here

    I love Marian Keyes’s books. My teaser is from the first Nancy Drew mystery.

    Haha. That reminds me of when I was a child. My parents always told me I had to clean my room before the cleaner came. Always confused me!

    Here is my teaser

    I really enjoy reading Marian Keyes novels, especially the Walsh sisters novels.

    My teaser is here this week.

    Isn’t that the way we women think. Good choice.

  12. March 2, 2010 4:39 am

    LOL, very funny. I have a little bit of that thinking in me. Here’s Mine.

  13. March 2, 2010 4:41 am

    that’s the thing i’d do once in a week..almost. ha!

    here’s mine;

    Haha, that’s hilarious! And yet, somehow I can totally see the logic behind it :P

    o.0 lol

    here’s mine

    I know I’d be cleaning for my cleaning lady if I ever had the money for one. Can’t have anyone seeing the house dirty!

    Mine is here.

    Haha, this is a great teaser! I haven’t read anything by Keyes, but I know I should really change that. My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.

  19. March 2, 2010 6:11 am

    That’s funny – and in my case very close to the truth (back when I had a cleaning lady a couple times/month – but those days are over *sigh*)

  20. March 2, 2010 6:29 am

    *LOL!* That cleaning lady would run screaming if she ever set foot in my house. :-)

    My teaser: A Bit of Chick Lit for Teaser Tuesday

    HAhaha, well, of course the cleaning lady wants the house clean. Fun teaser!
    Here’s mine.

  22. March 2, 2010 6:58 am

    I love that the cleaning lady’s name is Conchita! LOL
    We actually have little buses here in Miami called Conchita that help provide transportation for little old people.

    Here are our teasers for this week :)


  23. March 2, 2010 7:58 am

    OMG! Yes, that’s exactly how it works…clean before the cleaning lady comes!

    Mine is here:

    Ha ha ha. That’s funny. I would probably clean in preparation for a cleaning lady too, come to think of it. LOL My Teaser is Here!

  25. March 2, 2010 10:45 am

    Too funny and I know people that run around cleaning like that before they come. I have read Keyes, This Charming Man, and liked it.

  26. March 2, 2010 10:50 am

    Great teaser. Sounds like an interesting book. I’ll have to check it out.

  28. March 2, 2010 6:15 pm

    LOL! too funny!

  29. March 2, 2010 7:02 pm

    LOL – great teaser. Sadly, there really are people like this. Beats the purpose of hiring help if you ask me. *g*
