3 Things About Edie Hart That You Probably Don’t Know

I had the hardest time coming up with something for this blog. I know it’s supposed to be easy – I’m a writer right? But I still found it hard. I sit here and tell you that my name is Edie Hart, I write romance novels, I’ve been married 15 years, have 2 children, 3 cats and a dog; however, if someone were to come up to you in a week or so and say, “Do you know Edie Hart?” would you really remember that? I wanted to tell you something more interesting. Something that you will remember. Something a little gossipie.

My goal today is to tell you 3 things about me that you probably don’t know.

The first thing is that I have to admit that I’m really clumsy. I’m constantly knocking things down and bumping into things. The thing that I have the most trouble with is drinks. I’m constantly spilling water down the front of me or dumping my milk on the floor. No matter how careful I try to be, I always seem to make a mess with whatever I’m drinking.

My second thing is that I have a sarcastic – maybe a bit strange – sense of humor. My husband is a cop and he works different shifts. One time when my kids were really little, I accidentally fell asleep – sitting up mind you – while my son was playing and watching cartoons. My daughter had just been born – she was sleeping – and I was exhausted. While I was sleeping, my son, who was 3 at the time, scooted a stool in our kitchen over to the counter so he could reach the powder sugar donuts. Now normally when a child sees you sleeping they take that opportunity to not let you sleep. But in this case, he was extremely quiet while sneaking the donuts.

When I woke up I realized what had happened – he had a powdered sugar ring around his mouth, the stool was moved and the donuts were gone. When my husband found out, he was a little upset. He didn’t understand how I could possibly fall asleep like that. Well, I have to admit that my feelings were hurt a bit, so later that day when I took the kids to the grocery store, I left my husband a note.

It said—

Dear Hubby, I’m out bar hopping. Sorry I missed you.

I would have been home sooner, but I had to wait for the kids to get back from the gas station with my beer and cigarettes.

Don’t worry about the kids. I will leave the car windows cracked for them while I’m in the bar getting drunk and making out with random strangers.

Don’t wait up, we’ll probably be late.

Keep your hands off my crack pipe and stay away from my heroin while I’m gone.

Love, Edie.

So, yeah, that’s my strange sarcastic sense of humor. The really funny thing about this whole falling asleep deal is that the following weekend, my husband fell asleep while watching the kids.

The third and final thing I’d like to tell you is that I like to play little tricks on my husband. Some might call them cruel, but he’s a good sport and I’m still married, so they can’t be that cruel.

One of the best tricks that I played on my husband involved Jessica. Jessica Simpson is what I like to call her. Jessica is an old leftover mask from one Halloween. It’s a crabby-looking old woman with long white hair. I love to scare my husband with Jessica… I put her in our bed, hang her on the backs of doors… I’m sure you get the idea.
One day before I left for work, I got this great idea. I stuffed Jessica in a body pillow, threw an old bathrobe on her and propped her in a kitchen chair. To make my prank even better, I put a glass of water in front of her and left the TV on. Wellll, my husband is a cop and he decided to come home for lunch that day. Unfortunately I wasn’t there to see it, but Jessica scared him so bad that he said he almost shot her with his gun.

So now I’ve told you 3 things about me that you might not know. The next time someone says “Do you know anything about Edie Hart?” You can say, “Yes. Did you know that she… 1. Has a drinking problem 2. Leaves her kids in the car while she bar hops, And 3. Her husband almost shot Jessica Simpson in their kitchen.

Gray stepped outside of the hotel ballroom hoping the air would be cooler out there. He hated stuffy gatherings. Hell, he hated weddings. How two people could think they’d love each other forever was beyond him. Gray didn’t do love. Which was why he was stag at a co-worker’s wedding. He’d originally planned to invite Monique, but several months back she’d become demanding and talked about moving into his place with hearts and flowers in her eyes. So he’d ended it. Deep down, he’d known that she didn’t really want him. She wanted any warm body that would take care of her. She had slowly been trying to mold him into some GQ tycoon, telling him what to wear, how to act, and even going as far as telling him what he needed to do career-wise.

A loud crash on the other side of the hall caught Gray’s attention. In the open ballroom across the way he saw legs. Glorious legs in strappy high heels. The beautiful legs were tangled on the floor and attached to an ass that was just as gorgeous. After taking a closer look, Gray realized that above the amazing ass was an enormous, white light bulb-shaped head with blue googly eyes. It had blonde hair and wore a glittery purple hat. The tangled-up legs and heels were flailing around in a pile of what looked like empty light bulb boxes. Several gentlemen nearby were quick to help Legs get her feet beneath her. From their smiles and laughter he could tell that they were all quite happy to be of assistance. Gray didn’t blame them.

He watched Legs find her balance in those high heels, and with a little wiggle and tug of her skirt she went on her way.

About The Author:

Edie Hart was born in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, where she now resides with her husband, two children, dog, and three cats. After spending her childhood making up stories in her head, she finally decided to put them on paper. What came of it was her first novella, One Bad Day. Edie is a die-hard romantic and believes that everyone deserves to be loved unconditionally—both in print and real life.

Edie also admits that “Edie Hart” is a pen name and an alter ego to an otherwise boring wife and mother. Edie is 20 pounds lighter, loves to skydive, travels to foreign places, and is a total sex kitten as compared to the uninteresting other half who is none of those things.

In reality the counterpart of Edie is a lackluster 40-something-year-old, whose main goal is to keep The Big One (The Boy) from torturing The Little One (The Girl). This week he hit her in the head with a 12-pack of Juicy Juice. Last week he left ravioli handprints on the back of her white T-shirt. The week before that he told her she was adopted and she believed him.
