Still Hanging in There: Confessions of a Totaled Woman

Front Cover
iUniverse, Mar 17, 2001 - Humor - 232 pages

A lighthearted manual for getting through each day with humor and giddiness. It is a delightful look at some of our minor, daily irritants that includes marriage, motherhood, football reruns of highlights of last years game and the men we love who watch them again and again.

The book is filled with astounding anti-diet/anti-exercise advice in the chapter How I turned flab into dollars. While Jan was jogging she thought she heard applause. Regretfully it was simply her thighs hitting together. She was paid extremely well to leave the neighborhood. Franchise anyone?

There are time management tips If you do not polish silver for six years it begins to look like pewter. Pewter is nice! This joyful philosopher notices most human absurdities, ponders, reflects and then answers such questions as Can we really leave nagging to strangers? Why is it that for every light on Broadway there is a runny nose? She agrees with Hemingway that though the sun also rises, it also fades the drapes.

This witty book will have you shaking with glee (67 calories expended) as you realize the stuff that really annoys you can be thought about in a more amusing, tolerable and weight losing manner.
