Such a shame we couldn’t use a transcript of this quite superb TV commercial for Axe/Lynx in the book. See the original here:
I remember her.
Not a girl, but the girl.
The brains behind the ‘All-time Top Ten Comic Book Fictions’ only wish they could conjure a siren the likes of Susan Glenn.
Beneath my feet my own private earthquake registered an eight when Susan Glenn was near.
In her presence, all that was beautiful before she arrived turned grotesque. And in her shadow, others became…goblinesque.
If she approached, Susan Glenn didn’t walk, she floated, accompanied by pyrotechnic spectacles that left me feeling a foot tall.
She embodied every desirable quality I’d ever wanted.
In my mind I was a peasant before a queen, and so Susan Glenn and I were never a thing.
If I could do it again, I’d do it differently.
