In Which I Get Distracted by Gold Medalists with Fine Abs

Here's a Thursday gift of eye-candy for y'all.


This is Nathan Adrian, three-time Olympic Gold Medal Swimmer and me, pretending it's no big deal that he's like, five feet taller than me and that his chesticles are right next to my ear. My sister-in-law snapped this at the Olympic Trials in Omaha.  *This picture was sanctioned by my spouse, who also stares in awe at his awesome awesomeness.*

What? What did you say? Move out of the way, because I'm covering up too much chesticle?

Okay.

Oh yeah. Also, my book cover reveal is on Monday on Young Adult Books Central. That's the only other important thing I had to say today. Have a great weekend! May you dream of Olympic swimmers and dazzling smiles. And chesticles, of course. :)

LYDIA, you have no idea how JEALZ I am right now! Eeee! I'm also kick myself every time I see him because I'm pretty sure we had some overlapping years at Cal, and GOD, WHY DIDN'T I EVER GO LOOK FOR THE POOL?! Oh wait, because it's NorCal and therefore rainy and freezing most of the time (to my spoiled SoCal self). #EpicFail

In other news, I am so excited for your cover reveal. Please tell me Nathan Adrian is on it. ;)

Could care less about the chest, but wow, that dude is tall.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome. My daughter, who's a swimmer, would love to meet him. Can't wait for your cover reveal.

Louise Bates said...

Oh my, what a PERFECT way to start my Thursday! Though I have to say, it's his dimples that kill me.

SO looking forward to your cover reveal, especially after learning the cover currently on Goodreads is NOT the proper one!

Oh MY Gah! That's... that's... Nathan Adrian! If I was that close to him, I'd go totally fangirl. He was my favorite swimmer at this past Olympics. He seems so nice and he's such a cutie-pie. I'm so jealous.
