I have a brother that is six years younger than me and we were both very thin well into our thirties. We both married heavier partners and when we would hug each other, we'd both get kind of grossed out by how skinny the other was. God, he was like hugging a skeleton.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
