Hey, I have a new Christina McMullen UN-mystery (Unmanned) coming out at the end of the month, so…in honor of Christina and her less than stellar dating history, I ask: Who’s your fantasy freebie?
Okay, I understand that some of us have husbands/boyfriends/significant others who wouldn’t agree to a freebie even if the seven horsemen of the Apocalypse were thundering down on us from the sky. But if you could spend the night with anyone free of guilt, blame, and venereal disease, who would it be?
Christina and I discussed this at some length. It was a difficult task, sitting around with my imaginary friend, thinking about hot men, debating their various attributes/body parts, but for you Fresh Fiction readers…anything.
Anyway, we came to the conclusion that while physical appearances can hardly be discounted (let’s be honest–we’re all shallow here) there are actually other factors which might be more important. Attitude, for instance. Personality. Then there’s that strange inexplicable thing I’ll simply call the ‘wow’ factor.
After this long cerebral discussion, Christina was rather chagrined to admit that her choice would be Colin Farrell, because even though she’s an intelligent woman with a PhD, she has a thing for bad boys with inarticulate Irish accents. (You have to forgive her; she once bought a picture frame that was sold with a photo of a hot guy. She kept the guy in the frame, gave him a name and a history and claimed him for her own. Christina’s got some problems, PhD and all.)
But, I digress.
As for myself, I’m going to have to go with Viggo Mortenson. But it can’t be just the run-of-the-mill Mortenson…it has to be the Aragorn version of Mortenson. He has to have the hair and the sword and that novel-inspiring ‘bring on the hounds of hell’ look in his eye that makes men bristle and women go all noodley. I want the whole enchilada, sour cream and all.
So….what about you? What’s the most important element you look for in a freebie? And…considering those elements…who’s your ultimate pick? Who’s the one person you’d want to spend one mind-bending, bone-melting night with?
