Random things occur to me at the oddest of times. This is one of them.
Men have A Package. If you haven't heard of this term before check it out on Urban Dictionary for a full description.
So now we're all on the same page: Men have A Package. What do women have?
*Cue lightbulb moment for Elissa whilst doing housework and pondering storyline for future book*
Aha. Women have The Deal.
And you know what, the cool thing about having The Deal is that it's completely subjective. If you think what you have is The Deal, then it's The Deal. And by The Deal I mean the whole boob/butt/leg thing because those are the three main areas men express a preference for. Women will tell you they're a Hands Girl, or a Butt Girl, or an Eyes Girl. There are Smile Girls and Sense of Humour Girls, Witty Girls and Height Girls. In fact there are probably just as many Girls as there are attractive features. But men, they keep it simple: Boob Man, Butt Man or Leg Man. The only men who say they are Beautiful Soul Men are being interviewed for a women's magazine or trying to get into your pants!
So back to The Deal.
Women come in all shapes and sizes and The Deal celebrates them all. But there are people out there who will try and confuse you about The Deal so I have compiled a little cheat sheet for you. Now you can talk The Deal like a pro and never utter a Deal faux par again.
