over dinner, a friend told me she would never marry a girl who buys her a journal or asks her to read a book.
as a reformed, non-reader and avid note taker, i was eager to prove her wrong. and, marry her.
i hated reading.
i was an idiot.
i equated literary esteem to entertainment. they are not the same thing.
i told her, i would buy her this book, because i am confident that this is the book that will make her a believer. a reader.
a.the font is huge.
b.he swears. more than i do.
c.it’s fucking hilarious.
i think this is strong criteria for a good book.
the average american male.
