## Description (from Goodreads)

From the bestselling, award-winning author of You Can't Drink All Day If You Don't Start In The Morning, comes another collection of hilarious observations that will resonate with women, mothers, and girlfriends everywhere

In her newest wickedly irreverent humor collection, Celia Rivenbark cracks up while getting her downward facing dog on, pines for a world in which every mom gets to behave like Betty Draper and wonders why everybody's so excited about the Science Fair when there aren't even any rides. In it you’ll find essays on such topics as:

-Menopause Spurs Thoughts of Death and Turkey

-I Dreamed a Dream That My Lashes Were Long

-Twitter Woes: I’ve Got Plenty of Characters, Just No Character

-Movie To-Do List: Cook Like Julia, Adopt Really Big Kid

-Charlie Bit Your Finger? Good! And other thoughts on the virus that is YouTube

And much more! For any woman who longs for the good old days when Jane Fonda in legwarmers was the only one who saw you exercise, YOU DON’T SWEAT MUCH FOR A FAT GIRL is comfort food in book form.

MY THOUGHTS

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

I love Celia Rivenbark's writing even though I don't live in the South, it is fun to travel there through her books. She covers such topics as Twitter and her take on menopause is worth the price of the book alone. My favorite term of hers is for her husband, who she lovingly calls "duh-hubby" -- you can infer what you like from that reference. I admit I troll the internet looking for her essays while I wait for another one of her books to be released. I think my favorite one is where she pretends to be a trailer trash version of Midge who writes a Happy Birthday letter to Barbie on her 50th! There is almost a snark overload with this one. If you enjoy Dave Barry, you will more than likely enjoy this as well!
