Dear No One in Particular,
I tried to resist, I really did. But I have to admit: I am fan of Michael Phelps.
Jesus Almighty, what living woman wouldn't be? I believe his goofy smile is adds to his overall deliciousness, but I know that "butterface" has been used quite often to describe Phelps.
So yes, I am one among many, many "Phelps Phans" (gross term, IMO) , and apparently, the New York Times is also a devotee.
Oh, and NYT? Thanks for the opening photo. Really -- thank you.
