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.

About the author (2005)

From Ninja chickens to not so slick moves at the drive-in theatre, the author shows that if you aren’t having fun with life, you’re probably dead.  His philosophy is, “Even though I had nothing to say about the decision to bring me into this world, I’m going to take advantage of the opportunity.  I’m also going to hunt down the guy who smacked me in the delivery room.”

A freelance writer of a weekly newspaper column for ten years, six years as a columnist for a monthly outdoor publication, and a member of Hoosier Outdoor Writers, he attempts to describe the humorous side of everyday situations faced by the average Joe and Joan.  A laugh at life.
