“I was seventeen, but matters of sex so embarrassed me that I could only speak of our God-given anatomy in terms like ‘you know where,’ and ‘down there.’ One day, when I was typing a story for an English class, I had an aura that ended in an orgasm. I pressed the Q key, and heat went through me; I pressed the U key, and the heat turned to a sweaty shiver.” Lauren describes anything that relates to sex as embarrassing, yet she says she had an aura that ended in an orgasm. Last class we discussed if Lauren is a reliable person. I don’t think she is lying. Her exaggerations may not have been the exact way something in her life occurred, but I believe that the things she exaggerates are the things that are the most important to her. Just like how the first chapter says “I exaggerate.” Going back to where the book is called a Metaphorical Memoir. This basically just sums up how her exaggerations are similar to comparisons to key events.
