9780692474426: The Armadillo, the Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket

Author’s Note: “The Armadillo, the Pickaxe, and the Laundry Basket” is not a work of fiction. Neither is it a work of fact, at least not entirely. It is mostly true, and mostly harmless. Most people named are who I say they are. Some names and situations have been slightly altered to protect the privacy of the people whose stories I have stolen, more or less always with permission. Some situations have been exaggerated for effect, or tweaked a little bit, if I thought they were funnier exaggerated or tweaked. No animals were harmed in the making of this book, except maybe the armadillo, who was mostly just terrified. But that’s ok – so was I. Author Pretending to be a Publicist’s Note: Lori B. Duff has been hailed as the funniest woman to ever put pen to paper, sometimes even by people who aren’t her Mom. Her work has been compared (again, not by her Mom) to Erma Bombeck and David Sedaris. This book is her second collection of humorous essays.

Product Description:

On the surface, Lori B. Duff seems to have one of those charmed lives. She has a long time marriage, two perfect children, a great job, and a successful life as a writer. She's made all the right decisions and choices. So why is it that she finds herself wrestling armadillos; with eyeball stitches; fretting about what wine pairs best with crunchy Cheetos; unable to find a single acceptable pair of shorts in a store; or dealing with her husband’s multitude of injuries and illnesses while choking back a gag? This hilarious collection of autobiographical essays is the perfect follow up to Lori's debut hit book "Mismatched Shoes & Upside Down Pizza." You'll find yourself laughing out loud and nodding in agreement. Read this funny memoir, howl with laughter, and meet your new best friend.
