Mind-Blowing Story: “Talking to God…” I met god the other day. I know what you’re thinking. How the hell did you know it was god? Well, I’ll explain as we go along, but basically he convinced me by having all, and I do mean ALL, the answers. Every question I flung at him he batted back with a plausible and satisfactory answer.

Normally these terms are considered antonyms, which would make my made-up word a complete oxymoron. I aim to convince you of just the opposite.

It’s been 7 days since I started the Love Experiment and all I have to say is wow. Those of you who were also feelin’ the love this week will know what I’m talking about when I say I feel amazing.
