Here we go again: This time, my fellow scribe Sean Ferrell (author of the disturbingly good Numb) submits a question clearly designed to provoke an alcoholic rage:
Now, if you’ll excuse me JEFF ANGRY JEFF GO SMASH.
You are a handsome man.
And when I say “handsome” I mean “incredibly sexy” and when I say “you” I mean “me.”
In other words: Me are a incredibly sexy man.
And when I say “man” I mean…
HAHAHAHAHAHA! My son came downstairs to find out why I was howling with laughter.
Ah, the banter…. Very entertaining.
Sean: You grammar level, as always, astonishes me. I am astonished. Or perhaps that is the flushed feeling I get when standing next to you after you’ve taken your shirt off, which so often happens at the literary events we attend … in taverns.
Patty: Glad you liked it! It’s all Sean’s fault. He keeps provoking me.
Best closing line ever.
Beth: I may have stolen that from someone. not sure.
For five bucks, or a bottle of whiskey, I’ll even make sure the book in the tattoo is prominently displayed. Presto, you have a walking billboard.
Speaking of alcohol fueled rage, where’d you develop the tolerance for that much liquor?
(Out of curiosity, did the Adrian you know get pelted with Rocky phrases day-in and day-out?)
Honestly at the end of the day you’re both still authors who vicariously live through their works. I on the other hand have a superman cape from six flags. I like to wear it to church fly around the room during prayer.
Adrian: One, drinking is like exercise. You gotta work the muscles. You don’t get to my level overnight. It takes dedication and discipline, adult diapers and a tolerance for humiliation.
No, the Adrian I knew had siblings who took a lot of the kiddie abuse off of her, as I recall. It’s always good to have weird siblings to block for you in childhood.
Smedley: Um … can I borrow that cape?
