Book #17

I loved this book. Just as I expected. And my dad is totally Don Fey minus the snazzy dressing and the Republicanism. (Although he is just slightly more Blue Dog Democrat than I'd like. So, SAME THING.)

Choice quotes:

"My ability to turn good news into anxiety is rivaled only by my ability to turn anxiety into chin acne."

"Politics and prostitution have to be the only jobs where inexperience is considered a virtue. In what other profession would you brag about not knowing stuff? “I’m not one of those fancy Harvard heart surgeons. I’m just an unlicensed plumber with a dream and I’d like to cut your chest open.” The crowd cheers."

"Then she took out a speculum the size of a milk shake machine. Even Michelle Duggar would have flinched at this thing, but I had never seen one before."

Lots of teenage girls have taken comfort under the wings of half-closeted gay boys.”

Best memoir I've read in ages. I loved it, too.

One of my fave lines: "It's a burden, being able to control situations with my hyper-vigilance, but its my lot in life."
