“Yeah, well, I’d try act like it wasn’t a big deal too if a guy who’d told me he loved me when I was engaged to someone else came to be later and told me he had a girlfriend.”
I really think it would have gone this way if Karen had only known earlier what was truly going on.
PS I think you meant to say "me" where I highlighted above..

"But tonight…tonight he had been adorable beyond endurance."
I loved Karen's reaction to the drunken adorableness that was Jim - including the X-rated thoughts. (But I'm still glad he answered the phone...)

Really love this one too. I like the way you write Karen, she wants Jim but at the same time she realizes that she can't have him. Loved this line: Jim Halpert might be single, but he was definitely, completely unavailable. and the part where she says, "Yeah, well, I’d try act like it wasn’t a big deal too if a guy who’d told me he loved me when I was engaged to someone else came to be later and told me he had a girlfriend.” Oh, and when she realizes that Jim probably didn't have anyone to talk to about this, so she's the one who listened to him. So yeah, I really did like Karen. Heehee. =)

Hoping you don't mind a JAM fan review: LOVED IT.
Author's Response: Of course not! I hear t all reviews. I just wanted to ask those with a natural predisposition to Karen to let me know what they thought of my take on her.
