Being Born: And Other Simple Pleasures
By looking on the bright side, the author attempts to explain how such things as Kamikaze Banty roosters or the purchase of your first used car can have a humorous slant. Starting from the time of babysitting chickens during forced labor on a small farm to coping with traveling in foreign lands, the author shows how everyday experiences can leave a lifelong impression, much like stepping on a rusty nail. From grade school through high school and on to higher planes of endeavor, the reader will inevitably find something he or she can relate to. Sweaty palms on a first date to frog anatomy in Biology 101 illustrates how life can be funnier than a stand-up comedian.
