If you have an appreciation for off-beat, random humor, you will enjoy his take on dating, life in space, being a writer, soap, drinking and other essentials of life. (By the way, Poorly Drawn Lines is not for children. Rated-R language.)
Here's a selection that I could really relate to:
I know you see me . . . I see that little glance and I know you're watching me reach for the cantaloupe again.Oh, yeah. I'm going out to buy some cantaloupe now.
Seven. I've had seven pieces of cantaloupe. . . . Look at the chewed-out rinds glazing over in a haphazard stack on my paper plate. Count them. Count them and judge me as you look toward the cantaloupe bowl and then down at your napkin, which you're using as a plate because you've had only two slices . . . .
I'm the wolf of cantaloupe and I will eat it all and feel nothing of this shame you try to project at me . . .
