A Moment to Ponder

I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the art of eye-rolling. This is all because of Cathy Maxwell and her hero that touched the ceiling and made me think of Andre the Giant.

I remember another eye-rolling moment, which actually turned into a raised eyebrow moment. It was either a Susan Johnson book or a Virginia Henley. The hero is aroused (and with those two, could he be anything else?) He was approaching the heroine; she looked down and observed that his manly equipage was touching his belly button. Yipes!!!

Since I am in possession of an inquiring mind, I immediately retrieved my handy dandy ruler... and on me, the measurement came to 10 inches or 25.4 centimeters. And I'm not built like a man, so it still turns out to be a yipes.

So, I must ask; why is it necessary to make everything bigger, stronger, smarter, or the best they've ever had? Why can't there be a normal, regular guy hero? And, I really think I must work on an eye-roller list.

The norm is having a hero channeling his John C. Holmes.
