With temptation waiting in one of the ER’s exam rooms, she finds herself craving more. After Richard’s extramarital affair . . .

Even she is floored, however, when she reads "Good in Bed,­" a new women's magazine column penned by her ex-­boyfriend, pothead grad student Bruce Guberman. Three months earlier, Cannie suggested they take a break apparently, Bruce thought they were through and set about making such proclamations as, "Loving a larger woman is an act of courage in our world.­" Devastated by this public humiliation, Cannie takes comfort in tequila and her beloved dog, Nifkin.
