I saw your book at Coles just before I left for a trip to Haiti to do some mission work. I thought if I don’t like your book at least I have toilet paper while I am there. I figure it was money well spent either way. Actually your book helped me out quite a bit. We had to do a lot of manual concrete work. It was 90 degrees plus every day and I have a cushy office job now. I’m not saying I am a flabby bag of shit by any means but there were times when I said “holy shit, this is hard work”. Then I heard this voice say “shut the fuck up and keep wheeling you pussy, there are women here doing the same work as you.” I said “fuck you, it’s easy for you to say because you go to the gym every day and work out like some fucking robot.” Then the lifter and I got into some deep discussions while I was wheel barrowing. Every time I wanted to stop for a break the Lifter was in front of me calling me a pussy. I could not let him get one up on me so I pushed through the pain and said “fuck you Lifter” and kept going. Each and every time that I wanted to stop I thought about your damn book and I kept going. It really was quite inspirational. It was funny because I actually was saying these things in my head as I kept working. Anyways you helped me push over 500 wheelbarrows of cement, countless 5 gallon pails of water, stone, and sand, and not once did I give up to the pain or exhaustion. Now go back to your fucking gym and let me get back to my cushy office job, I deserve a rest.
