Grown-ups. They stink. Some of these very same characters get to have happy sex in The Winter Wars when they're teenagers. (Though not with each other.) That's one of the very few bits I've already written on that book, and I don't even like writing sex scenes. I feel sure that several of the minor characters are having happy sex offscreen. But I can't very well introduce a new viewpoint character just to put some happy sex in my book. Stupid, stupid characters.
It's snowing, at least; that's cheering, sort of. And I can take a break and make myself bread or muffins later today. Or mop. Mopping is not very cheering, but compared to "make this sex ickier!" it's a veritable romp.
