I think we can all agree there is really only one major question to be asked at the end of that book:
How long would you have to be locked in an attic with your brother before you would have sex with him?
For February, in honor of Valentine's Day (which I still officially hate), I've chosen The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough.
I think this is going to be a different read than it was when we were in middle school and getting all steamy at the idea of a hot priest. The ongoing Catholic Church scandal has ruined that whole thing. I can't imagine being attracted to a Catholic parishioner much less a priest.
But I've come up with something to help this aversion to power-abusing indoctrination and institutionalized evil!
Pictures of hot priests!
On the streets of Rome, you can purchase a hot priest calendar.
You can also find a "steamy" gay hot priest calendar!
"I will make you as firm as a rock, as hard as a diamond."
Or you can simply picture this guy. The Pope's personal secretary Georg Gänswein has been called the George Clooney of the Vatican.
"Go, call your husband, and come back."
"My mouth praises thee with joyful lips, when I think of thee upon my bed."
"And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do wonders."
"Put your finger here and observe My hands. Reach out your hand and put it into My side."
