Despite not living there, I thought I was fairly up to date on US culture (in broad, general terms). But then I tried to read this and could not make heads or tails of most of it. I was shaken to the core of my being.
After going throught it a few times it made a little more sense. But still, in what universe is this considered good writing?
“Her embrace upon recognizing me is all-encompassing and sincere, like the magna mater meets Barry’s Bootcamp. She’s just finished rehearsal for a new Go-Go’s musical (!) slated for a possible Broadway run — Thank you, Lord! — so she apologizes as she tears into a veggie wrap.”
I felt a little better when I skipped to the comments to find most of them addressed the over the top waterboarded prose as well. I felt a little more normal, so that’s nice.
