Bob Powers, the man behind the story-a-day Girls Are Pretty blog, stopped by to read a couple stories on our show today. Sadly we ran out of time and had to cut him off before he could finish his second piece. He was kind enough to stick around and record it for us in full. Enjoy.

Honestly, Bob Powers and his blog are both awesome. He's a nice guy that actually responds to emails sent to him, and he just writes hilarious and beautifully dark stories. Buy his book!

As Chris Rock might say, "That ain't right!"

Geez...this fast-paced tech world has some unintended consequences. This is not helping me readjust to this country after returning from my 2004 - 2007 Peace Corps experience in laid back Ghana, West Africa. Sooooo different.
