Gail made fun of my pink shirt so I decided some tongue-in-cheek writing fun was in order…
From 6/21/12 GQ Magazine – (advance preview cover story)
FROM YELLOW TO PINK
2012′s Sexiest Liver Transplant Recipient, Scott Linscott, is looking stellar in his pink shirt. His laid-back nature is carefully conveyed with a tieless open collar while his refined attention to style is picked up in the pinks of the dress of the super model at his side.
“I’ve always known I’m damn sexy,” Linscott said. “But sexiest transplant recipient? I’m surprised yet totally worthy.”
Just six weeks ago Linscott was a pastey yellow color but now, after his May 7 transplant, he is a healthy shade of pink.
“My dad has always been my fashion inspiration,” laughed 24 year old pretty-boy Josh Linscott. (Josh gave his father more than half of his own liver so that he would live.)
Why would he put himself through major surgery for his dad?
“The fashion world would not be the same without dad,” he answers. “I mean, where would I turn for an expert opinion before my next coat purchase?” (Josh owns numerous coats, more shoes than Imelda Marcos and an ever growing fitted baseball cap collection.)
Linscott’s wife Robin knows she is a very lucky woman. “I try to stand next to Scott as much as I can because his beauty overflows onto me.”
Even his sister Gail, “the smart one,” looks kinda good near her gorgeous, fashionable brother. Sister Gloria, “the pretty one,” like Scott, always looks stunning.
The world is much sexier place with Scott in it. Beyond his looks, Linscott invests in numerous community projects including:
1. SMUPLLMOV -The society for making ugly people less likely to make others vomit.
2. Peace through Prettiness
3. SNAFC – Spay and Neuter all Fashionly Challenged
“Each of us can make a difference but we extremely pretty people can make the biggest difference,” Linscott said.
We at GQ Magazine agree. We also doubt that sister Gail will ever tease him for wearing pink again.
