I spent two weeks trying to make my way through a non-fiction book about Berlin under the early days of Hitler. Not exactly a light or enjoyable read. I finally gave up on the book and I wanted something fun.
Was so pleased to see this book by Laurie Notaro. I love her writing, she's so funny.
This book was so very funny, one night as I sat here reading it, I was laughing so hard I was crying and my whole body was sore. I couldn't stop laughing. This is one of those books that I've told everyone they need to read and I'll probably buy a few copies to give as Christmas gifts.
Of course, as I found out last time I insisted on everyone reading one of her books, not everyone gets her sense of humor. But then again, I tend to not be amused by things that most people find funny.
Notaro writes about simple, every day situations, that become hilarious. Such as trying on a shirt that's a size too small and then getting trapped in it, or being banned from the satellite post office for wanting to purchase too many two cent stamps. I could especially relate to having lost an iPhone - which I did this summer and felt the same raging hatred for the person who now I had my phone and all my photos and notes. The funniest story was about her husband thinking she was eating candy in bed. I won't tell you what happened, but highly recommend you find a copy and read it.
