Fine. Steam, vent to boss, and moving on. Lunch has a phone call that says Dad is going to have surgery, and they're not sure yet how serious this all might be, more tests are needed. Flash forward to end of day, back and forth picking up kids from after-school activities, making dinner, entering data reports for work, husband is sitting on couch referring neighbor's kids to ask you about a school fundraiser, ignoring you (no, literally), but willingly discussing truck repairs that need to be done. Do I look like a golden goose?
Did I forget to mention that in all of this I accidentally created my own little fire bowl in a planter on my front porch? Yep, and little is not actually the correct word. This planter is one of those pots that's oh about 3 feet tall and about 2 feet wide. One of those HUGE pots that require 2 or 3 people to carry. Nasty little habit smoldered all day in a huge pot with potting soil. I learned something new. Potting soil has mulch in it. Mulch likes to burn. Scary at the time, but freaking hilariously stupid after the fact.
So that was my day. What about the book? After dinner, I gave the whole family the evil eye. They knew. Ask her for NOTHING. You will walk away maimed, if you walk away at all. Laughter came rolling out after just a couple minutes.
"Good book?" (sarcastically asked)
"What are you on the first page?"
"Um," looking at pages, "No, the third."
That says it all. After a day like that (I know there could be worse) this book was able to make me literally laugh out loud within just a few pages. I spent the next few hours of my day laughing, chuckling, smiling, and just all around having a great time! It's not a big book so it doesn't take long. And if you're family isn't as old as mine (or as trained to be very afraid), it's separated into neat little sections that easily allow you to pick it up and set it down as needed. Highly recommended read! Though I would steer women towards it more than men.
