OK. Let me first just say that I use the term "bible" loosely and for reference only. I mean, look, I used lower case letters AND quotes as to not insult anyone, er, Up There. *wave*wave*wave*
I'm almost finished with what I am now considering my parenting reference book:
Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: And Other Words of Delicate Southern Wisdom by Celia Rivenbark.I couldv'e written this book myself.
Oh no, wait, I'm not a skinny blond who says hons and does book tours in New York with royalty checks pouring in while eating barbecue and bon bons and sitting on my Southern-style a**. Dang. (Just kidding about the "Southern-style Ass" part, Ms. Rivenbark...heh...heh...heh *gulp*).
However, this could be my Southe'n Sista. In a witty sarcasm, she covers everything from how soccer moms dress to her inability to make good gravey (as a SOUTHERN WOMAN! *gasp*) to how she spent an entire holiday creating butt music for her entire in-law family to politics and then some in between. I mean, the woman covers a whole chapter on Krispy Kreme for goodness sake. What more could you want?!? I want her to be my new BFF.
Anyway, it's a great book. Pick it up if you need some good laughs.
I would share more with you, but I'm off to rub elbows at a luncheon with authors such as Tess Gerritsen, Jane Hamilton, Loma Landvik, Rabbi Harold Kushner and Ursula Hegi.
Don't hate me because I'm, er, connected.
(And, NO, I'm NOT wearing the MANDARIN FROCK!)
(I wonder if there will be a Krispy Kreme on the way?!?)
