Overview

Things Go Wrong For Me is a memoir of sorts, a road map of Rodney Lacroix's haywire life thus far. From his childhood, through the raising of his own kids, to his vasectomy and post-divorce world ... this book is more than just a culmination of outrageous stories woven into a cohesive narrative, it's a testament for the "little guy."

In this case, literally. Rodney is 5'3". He's very little. Almost tiny. Bank tellers offer him lollipops. He makes holiday money wearing green stockings and fake ears. But even though he's small in stature, his stories and the laughs that accompany them are definitely BIG.

    I started following @Moooooog35 on Twitter a few months ago because someone re-tweeted something he said and he seemed funny. I like to follow random funny people. I hope some of their wit will rub off on me. Because I only pretend to be funny.

    So Rodney (That’s his real name. I didn’t know he had a real name.) wrote a book called Things Go Wrong For Me and I decided to give it a read. It was on sale for $2.99, so what did I have to lose? Besides almost $3. And the time it took me to read it.

    I let it sit on my digital shelf for a while because I had more important things to do. I don’t know what they were, but I’m sure they were very important.

    I finally read it. And I read it in two days. I would have read it in one day, but I got busy doing other important things.

    I’m sorry Rodney. Feeding my kid and going work are slightly more important than reading your book. Please forgive me.

    Turns out, the book was totally worth the almost $3 and the time it took me to read it. Dude is hilarious. Way funnier than he is on Twitter. I laughed until tears rolled down my cheeks.

    This memoir-of-sorts is filled with little vignettes from his life, from his childhood as a fat kid, his vasectomy, and his life post-divorce. The childhood story about the toboggan is probably the funniest. There are pictures and diagrams and really crappy drawings that add to the ridiculous humor of each story.

    I really don’t want to say a lot, because if it’s unexpected, it’s totally funnier.

    I didn’t know Rodney has a blog. I just knew his humor from Twitter. There is so much more hilarity to ensue.

    Want to laugh until you pee your pants? Read this book with a full bladder.

    What laugh a lot but still be able to control your bladder? Read this book right after you pee. Or, better yet, while you’re on the toilet. Totally makes sense.

    Offended by vulgar language or pictures of male genitalia with smiley faces? Don’t read this book.

    I loved the book!! It is Rodney uncensored, and he is funny as hell!! I've been reading his blog for years, and his book did not disappoint. I'd highly recommend it.

    I have followed Rodney's (aka, Mooooog's) blog for a couple of years now, so I sort of knew a little bit of what to expect when I read the book, but OMG the blog was the tip of the Rodney iceberg! I had no idea what I was getting into with this book, and I mean this in the best way possible! It's definitely guy humor, but it was still relatable to me as a gal. From his childhood stories of mishap after mishap as an overweight kid growing up in New Hampshire to him getting a taste of his own medicine when he had his own kids, each story is filled with Rodney's trademark snarkiness and self deprecating humor that makes his writing so relatable.
    His chapter of his now well known "Draw Something" drawings are absolutely hysterically funny and disturbing at the same time. I would expect nothing less.
    His book is filled with some stories from his blog, including the very detailed story about his vasectomy, (I swear, I think I know more about his balls at this point than I know about my "stuff" after my colonoscopy!), to funny stories about his kids and his "rules" about parenting.
    Things definitely go wrong for Rodney, but not this book. It's freakin awesome!
