Overview

I had been dreading this day for more than a year.
 
Everyone’s favorite Idiot Girl, Laurie Notaro, is very close to wearing out her welcome in her hometown of Eugene, Oregon. Just a year ago, she was eighty-sixed from the local satellite post office for buying too many two-cent stamps (“The post office lady looked at me like I had just asked her if she wanted to buy my sex tape”). 

Now Notaro, needing to send an important care package to her nephew, returns to the scene of the non-crime—which is located inside a drugstore that is stocked with everything from Hello Kitty trinkets to fake poo to “the largest collection of aging candy on the West Coast.” Will the post office lady who banned her the first time around kick her to the curb, or will Laurie use her Idiot Girl wiles to work her way back into the Mean Lady’s good graces? 

In this hilarious story, New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro’s signature pluck and irresistible candor are on full display and will have you laughing out loud.

It was cute. I laughed out loud. (But honestly, way too short!)

The first page started a bit slow but then she grabbed me with the description of th Eugene drugstore. It was hilarious and she just kept going from there. A delightful story and I'll be looking for more of her essays.

I can relate to much of this since I live in a tiny town with its own post office. I laughed from beginning to end. It was like she was writing my own experience. Super fast read.

If you have never read any of Laurie Notaros' work this is a fantasticly funny excerpt from one of her books. I have found all her writting to be funny, up lifting, with whitty descriptions!
