Like Kathy, I like to troll newspapers from around the country and find out what's news. Normally, I focus on things related to law. But sometimes you can't ignore a great story - even when there really is no legal angle. So look what I found in the Charlotte Observer: Charla Muller, a Charlotte "wife, mother and public relations professional" wanted to give her husband a 40th birthday present "so fabulous, over the top, something so special 'that my husband would never have to pause and say, What did Charla give me for my 40th birthday?'”
Naturally, she gave him 365 consecutive nights of sex (give or a take a few.) She was nervous about the gift. According to the Observer, Muller wondered: "if this gift could turn into 'a mistake that ranked up there with my mustache-bleaching incident.'"
And Brad, the husband, apparently wasn't so hot on the idea at first. Ultimately, they decided to try it. (Perhaps he was worried about the time commitment. Never fear: the ever-frugal Charla explains that "quickies often are preferred if you’re doing this daily.”) Like any good public relations professional, Muller then spun the tale into a book - 365 Nights: A Memoir of Intimacy (out this summer from Berkley Books and only temporarily ranked around 416,000th on Amazon).
How did the present work out? I suppose the Mullers' picture is worth a thousand words. My money says this woman is soon going to be all over the TV talk show circuit. Sometimes she'll be the featured guest; other times she'll just be part of the opening monologue.
Brad will never forget Charla's magical birthday gift. And soon, neither will America.
