Humorous short stories about life's minor embarrassments
About the Book
Did you know:
1. Lettuce can ruin your love life
2. Opera is best experienced after farm work
3. Twenty six year old men know nothing about women
These are some of the priceless life lessons the author learned the hard way by going through life's minor embarrassments. All the episodes recounted in the book resulted in tons of ego damage, especially the failed dates, but nobody died and everybody had a good laugh.
So if you get a kick out of somebody making a bit of a fool of themselves, and explaining it in good-humored and excruiciating detail, you'll find something to giggle about in this book. Like being sent to the swimming pool to swim in your underpants as a child. Having your hair fall off as you're talking to a beautiful Spanish woman. That kind of thing. Life.
Have just read the first 3 chapters and was rolling on my sofa laughing and crying uncontrollably only for my 6 yr old to find me in that state. She is very perplexed. The Bookcase story is hilarious!!!
Really enjoyed that. Just what the doctor ordered.
I found this hilarious. Recommending to my friends!
