Book: The Piper's Son
by Melina Marchetta
'Ned?' he says, after a while. 'Oi, Ned?'
'If someone says to you that the guy theyr'e going out with doesn't have to prove how smart he is, what's your response?'
'That he's dumb.'
'And if he has a sixpack?'
'Not too intense.'
'Dumb jock with no personality.'
'And they see eye to eye?'
Ned pauses. 'With the spitfire from Dili?'
'Same,' Tom corrects.
Ned holds up a hand to where Tara would reach him in height.
'Dumb jock with no personality and short-man syndrome.'
Heehee, love it :)
