“When I was little, my father used to sell guns and ammo at a sporting goods store, but I always told everyone he was an arms dealer, because it sounded more exciting.”  Jenny Lawson

I like books.  I especially like books that make me laugh so hard that I have to stop to wipe my eyes so I can see the page.  This is one, or maybe two.  The author is Jenny Lawson.  I went to Barnes and Noble to purchase an important and serious book.  No, I can’t remember what that book was but they didn’t have it.  And then I saw Jenny’s book, “You are Here, An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds.”

Another of Lawson’s book is “Furiously Happy”, described on Wikipedia as “… a humorous look at Lawson’s experience with depression and anxiety disorder…”  Who could resist with such a description.

The book I’m reading now is –


It’s the book that has me laughing and choking and wiping my eyes.

Warning – This book contains the four letter “F” word, a lot.  It’s not my favorite word but an even less favorite four letter word for me is “diet”.  To each his own.

It’s been raining on and off for over a month.  I needed something to cheer me.  I don’t drink alcohol any more.  Thanks, Jenny!
