For Gabby Pearson, being dumped in public before the dessert course has to be the lowest of the low-especially when it's the old, 'It's not you, it's me' speech. Honestly, how about something original - 'I have five minutes to live' (very possible); 'It's not you, it's the voices in my head' (thanks for the warning); or 'I am such a powerful sexual being I could put you into a coma with one kiss' (wishful thinking). Not that Gabby would ever know since Reed Larkin never bothered to take her to bed. Why does a girl bother (to shave)? The only thing left to do is offer the guy a goodbye-forever drink.on his head.
