Don't get me wrong, I like my author's on the chubby side and the message of this book is powerful and well-researched. And the choice of shirts that Roland wears on the cover makes me tingle in my bathing suit area a little bit. I like to imagine that Roland is wearing very snug bicycle shorts underneath and maybe some construction boots with a high white tube sock pulled up as high as they'll go. In one hand, a scepter. In the other, a 2 liter bottle of Royal Crown Cola.
Since I finished this book, I've been listening to the spirit within me. That spirit keeps telling me to watch YouTube videos with Denise Milani, so I'm not arguing with that. The spirit also wants me to ask my dad for $10,000 to buy an ATV but I'm feeling a little nervous about that.
And one time the spirit made me think about my sister's friend in a very very impure way.
