9780967607931: Life is Short, I Wish I Was Taller

Taller completes the humor trilogy; and like Ipock s earlier books, Life is Short, So Read This Fast! and Life is Short, But It's Wide, is bubbling over with side-splitting tales of everyday life in a not-so-everyday author s world. Here, Ipock dishes about parodies and maladies that affect us all: BMS--bald male syndrome, mole removal from faces and front yards, growing a $$$$ salad at home, Southern cooking and cliches, bra fitting at the girlfriend s getaway, senior citizens and traveling tiaras. This compilation of easy-read, two minute escapes (fifty-four in all) is great for holiday gifts, traveling, guest room reads or a fun escape. Ipock currently writes for Georgetown Times, Sasee and Columbia County Magazine.

About the Author:

Ann Ipock is an award-winning Southern humorist and speaker, who s found writing to be her safest career to date. After catching the mayor s mustache in her dental hygiene polisher, she joined a writer s group, began acting in community theatre and changed her hair color at least three times. She now lives in Wilmington, NC with her loving, loyal, and confused husband, Russell. They have two daughters and two granddaughters. Life is Short, I Wish I Was Taller follows Life is Short, So Read This Fast! and Life is Short, But It s Wide and completes the Life is Short trilogy. Ann currently writes for Georgetown Times, SC s oldest newspaper, Sasee and Columbia County Magazine. She has taught at the SC Writer s Workshop in Myrtle Beach, the Foothills Writers Guild Conference at Anderson University, and was selected as a judge for Catfish Stew anthology. Ann s hobbies include gardening, cooking, dining out, walking, dancing, painting, decorating, traveling, shoe-shopping and acting. These help to diminish her A.D.D. flare-ups. Her favorite role to date is Truvy Jones of Steel Magnolias. Among Ann s favorite childhood memories are her fourth grade school talent show, pantomiming Alley Oop, and promptly losing; entering a science project in ninth grade on crystallization, and promptly winning a blue ribbon; [with apologies to, Jim, the class genius she beat, who stood there crying]; and riding in the Christmas parade float, sponsored by The Bootery her family s shoe store, complete with big hair, a long formal gown with matching dyed peau de soie heels and white elbow-length gloves. Long live the beauty-queen wave! Ann s favorite quote: A warning: Life is full of decisions and you better not waver and quaver over each one or you will stress yourself. You will die young and miss your seventies and eighties, which are two decades that can be a delight. Emily Whaley, as told to William Billy Baldwin, author of Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden
