Droplets of rain cascaded down the windowpanes, and the sun was merely a figment of the imagination. The dark gray clouds held it prisoner behind their foggy mist, and the day was cold and dreary at best.
Lacey

Her deep chocolate, satiny skin reminded me of the fudge brownies my mother would prepare for the school bake sales to benefit the PTA,
Lacey
What an odd thing to say.

She took another puff of her cigarette and then picked up the pen, preparing to take notes.

The first time I ever laid eyes on Jason, I thought he was a junior-mack-daddy-wannabe that probably sat around on a Commodore 64 computer drinking grape Kool-Aid out of a peanut butter jar while watching Good Times.
Lacey
This is so oddly specific.

I can't wait to hear your final review. I remember reading this when it first came out. It was a book club read. I think we read darn near everything she wrote. Let's just say every one else loved he…

OMG, it's so bad. I'm struggling to finish this. If it wasn't for the podcast, I would have abandoned it long ago. Don't worry. I'm gonna have a LOT to day.

Before the hand on the spinner landed on the next color, his dick was hard, and the gigantic, elephantine sanitary napkin my mother made me wear was twice as soaked as before the game. It wasn’t soaked with blood, however, but with my pussy juice.
Lacey
This book is disgusting.

I decided to leave well enough alone. I sat there pretending to be enthralled in my side dish selection of succotash, but I was really trying to think of another subject.
Lacey
She was just complaining about how shitty their school meals were, but damn. They're getting succotash. Maybe I'm country, but that sounds delicious.

The next day I went outside and sat on the stoop sporting a pair of dark sunglasses, a black turtleneck, and black jeans like I was in mourning. I even had on black socks.
Lacey
This is so melodramatic. I love it.

“Whatchu gotta do for the fair?” I quizzed, attempting to throw a little slang in there so I appeared cool.

Everyone knew “Boo” was more than just a word Casper the Friendly Ghost whispered to unsuspecting children. Maybe not before the eighties, but Boo was a certified synonym for “Baby,” “Sweetie,” and “Snookums” by the time the word left Jason’s sexy-ass lips. I was a Boo. Aww, dayum!

This is bad. This is so bad.

Momma ran her fingers through my shoulder-length hair while I threw down on the omelet like Wilbur from Charlotte’s Web slopping up some grub.
Lacey
Of all the literature that could have been referenced in this book, Zane picked Charlotte's Web.

The grin on her face quickly faded and was replaced by a look of astonishment. She was flustered. It took her a moment to gather her bearings while I struggled to hold back tears. We never broke our stare. “Yes, I would definitely say that makes you a sexual addict!”
Lacey
Is this Dr. Marcella's first ever day as a shrink? None of this should surprise her nor should she acknowledge this as sexual addiction. I'M NOT EVEN A THERAPIST AND I'M BORED AS HELL BY ZOE.

“No thanks.” She was being extraordinarily friendly, and I began to wonder whether she had been feenin’ all week, anxiously awaiting to hear about the sexual escapades of the freakazoid slut she had as a new client.
Lacey
