About the Author

The author of this book is not supposed to exist. It was all a mistake. The mistake happened in 1933, when a twenty-year-old girl had sex with her seventeen-year-old cousin and I was the result. A failed attempt to "erase" this mistake was made by leaving me in a warm oven with the glass door closed. Had it not been for my grandmother who discovered me I would have smothered. I was left permanently brain damaged. My grandfather's suicide two years later did not help matters much. I grew up in an abusive dysfunctional household in which those responsible for me found my existence annoying. I was an outcast in my community, barely tolerated in school, and shunned. By the time I was eighteen I was so inflamed with rage that the only remaining question was how many people would I destroy on the way to prison and death?It is now sixty years later. Fifty of these years I have spent married to the most wonderful angel God created. Not surprisingly, she retired after thirty-five years as a special education teacher. We have two children who are adults and successfully fulfilling their lives with humor and adventure. I took my Masters Degree in Education Administration to the Far East where we worked with children from twenty-three different nationalities in elementary Joint Consulate schools. Upon retirement I became a clown volunteering in hospitals and throughout the community.The details of how this all happened are more complicated than I can relate. The point is I saved my life when at the age of nineteen I learned that anger - like debt - grows bigger and uglier. Humor is like an inheritance - it creates power and opportunity. Some of the things humor can do for youinclude helping you to:Develop positive attitudes Make lasting relationships Distance yourself from problems with minimum risk Increase your productivity Strengthen your immune system Reduces pain Enhances communication Change
