One passage in “Lawn Boy” reads:“What if I told you I touched another guy’s d***?” I said.
“Pff.” Nick waved me off and turned his attention back to his beer.
“What if I told you I sucked it?”
“Will you please just shut up already?”
“I’m dead serious, Nick.”
“Well, I’d say you were a f**.”
“I was ten years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goble’s d*** in my mouth.”
“The real-estate guy?”
Nick looked around frantically. “What the f*** are you talking about, Michael?”
“I was in fourth grade. It was no big deal.”
Cringing, Nick held his hands out in front of him in a yield gesture. “Stop.”
“He sucked mine, too.”
“Stop! Why are you telling me this?”
“And you know what?” I said. “It wasn’t terrible.”
