This story is a little different than the usual in that the MC is 41 years old. So often, stories are told from the POV of the 22-year-old hottie. Our hero, yes he’s named Ernest, is just over six feet tall and slightly overweight. He’s funny and adorable, as well, though he wouldn’t tell you that. (The man talks to his oven – something so endearing about that.)
