Light Humor

Somehow, I felt totally inappropriate, and perhaps immature, enjoying this book as much as I did, but I did, and I might not let too many people other than you know how much I enjoyed it!

Somehow, I felt totally inappropriate, and perhaps immature, enjoying this book as much as I did, but I did, and I might not let too many people other than you know how much I enjoyed it!

This book is laugh-out-loud funny! Laurie Notaro's experiences are quirky all in themselves, but it's her perceptions and wit, and how frighteningly close her thoughts are to your own thoughts about situations (but you'd refrain from saying them outloud) that make this book hysterical. Because this book is a set of her reflections, any chapter can be read on its own, and a few of the reflections did make me cringe (not in a good way)--like the bathroom humor, but over-all, it's a nice, non-serious, read that is guaranteed not to strain any brain cells.

I'm half way through this book and will not finish it. I don't understand why a grown woman would find so much humor in bird, doggie, human poop. It's the type of humor an adolescent boy would find very funny. I did not laugh out loud at any point. It's obvious she trying to direct the humor at herself -- she misses the mark -- on so many levels.

    some good ones and some not....

    some vignettes were quite funny and enjoyable and some were a chore to read though. a married lady with no kids, so i do not have a lot in common. those in the same social situation may enjoy this more than i did.
