Quotation that sums up my day

Saskia tossed back her long, almost white hair over her shoulders, and posed for her own benefit in the mirror, running her hand over her perfectly flat stomach and smooth hips. She turned around and screwed her head around to inspect her black mini-skirt clad bottom. She really did look good today, and would look even better after the shopping trip she had promised herself as compensation for having to endure last night. Sleeping all night in the same bed as an ageing government minister was one of the more distasteful parts of the deal, only marginally more palatable than having to kiss him passionately on the lips and tell him she loved him. The sex had been the easy part, though, because at least it hadn’t lasted long.
