The Perfect Space*
“I just want someone to sit and drink coffee with while we quietly mock the absurdity of others and occasionally break into song without being gay. THAT’S IT!” ~Abigail, Age 28
“I just want someone who doesn’t laugh when I try to reinvent flubber and likes their coffee the opposite of how they like their men and also likes sad songs. THAT’S IT!” ~Richard, Age 30
Abigail is a fairly successful businesswoman who just hasn’t found Mr. Right. Richard is a struggling inventor who just lost Mrs. Right Now. When these two meet at a local coffee shop, feelings start to percolate. Could it be love at first drop?
*In the movie adaptation of this wildly successful book, Kate Hudson has signed on to play Abigail and Ryan Renoylds as Richard. Opening July 2012.
