9780070064515: If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?

"See if you can read a paragraph without laughing out loud."
Art Buchwald
The enchanting lady of laughter has done it again--this time taking a hilarious swipe at husbands, honeymoons, tennis elbow, marriage, lettuce, the national anthem, and a host of other domestic dilemmas.
"It's fun from cover to cover."
THE HARTFORD COURANT

From the Publisher:

This book hits home in the passage about The Mother Mystique. The one passage I'd love to share is my mother's metamorphosis with her physical appearance through the years. Of course, she had her role models, and by judging from her fashion tastes and family photos, my mother was carbon copy of the following women:

1959

Betty Crocker (apron and waffle iron included).

1963

Doris Day. This phase included a beehive do, box suits and pillbox hats. Que sera, sera

son.

1970

It's a story of a lady who looks like Carol Brady.

1978

Schlemiel, schlamazel look at me I'm dressing like Penny Marshall.

1986

Nancy Regan reds. Alternating with Barbara Bush blues. (Hairstyles not included).

1998

Golden Girl wanna be. Mom's outfits include Bea Arthur gray hair and designer seat suits.
-- Louis Mendez, editorial

From AudioFile:

Barbara Rosenblat's witty reading style and perfect comedic timing are just right for this collection of Bombeck's newspaper columns from the 1970s. Bombeck and Rosenblat revel in the perils of homemaking, appraising everything from marriage and parenthood to shopping, skateboarding, family vacations, and going to the bathroom. The dry, overstated humor will bring about knowing guffaws and enlightened belly laughs, and maybe a few tears. This audiobook should be mandatory listening for all husbands and women considering motherhood. S.E.S. AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
