Some Got It ... Some Don't!
It's that IT thing for which all humor writers pray ... the ability to be naturally funny, no matter what. Lucille Ball had it. Carol Burnett had it. Erma had it. Susan Reinhardt has it, bless her heart. Her first book, 'Not Tonight Honey: Wait Till I'm a Size Six' was silly and hilarious and at times raucous and rowdy. I giggled my way through. Thinking I was in for more of the same with her new book, 'Don't Sleep With a Bubba,' I could hardly wait to wrap myself in some good ole down home humor, Reinhardt Style. She did not disappoint. Here's the kicker: she also exposes a vulnerable side of herself that has been hidden within the folds of laughter for way too long. Writing openly and honestly about her Achilles' heel, she even finds bits of humor in her darkest nights. In three chapters, she takes off her clown mask and becomes human, giving depth and insight to the entire book. Susan pokes fun at herself throughout. She still blames BIB 'Bitch in a Bag', the name she gave her uterus for making her go 'crazy as a shot cat.' Her mother is liberally sprinkled throughout and is always a delight. Her kids and her husband dive often into the wacky world of this writer. The chapters are filled with prose that comes straight from the author's heart and funny bone. Oh, heck. I don't want to spoil it for you, so go on and buy Susan Reinhardt's terrific new book, 'Don't Sleep With a Bubba ...Unless Your Eggs Are in Wheelchairs.' You're gonna love it, bless your heart.
