Cute little book about the joys of being a woman.....especially in the south. Had some pretty funny analogies.

I am from the South and enjoyed this. One point I'd like to bring up is that I didn't expect it to be a collection of essays / newspaper columns. That kind of spoiled it for me a little bit. It was laugh out loud funny in many places, but I was expecting something more along the lines of a memoir with a plot that moves through the whole book.

Don't let that deter you from reading this, just be aware this is more Erma Bombeck than Jen Lancaster.

Not as good as Stop Dressing but along the lines with We're Just Like You IMO. Rivenbark has a great sense of humor and I'll read anything that she writes from now on!

Good, crazy, typical Celia Rivenbark humor!

Here's her "take" on a 1950's advice book for wives:

Textbook: "Prepare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest so that you'll look refreshed when hubby comes home from work. Touch up make-up and put a ribbon in your hair. He's just been with work-weary people. Be a little gay. His boring day needs a lift."

Mama Celia: "Get knee-walking drunk. You've earned it. You've been with four kids under the age of 7 all day. Put a ribbon in your nose and try to pull it out of your mouth. You're wasted, after all. Announce you're gay. Tha look on his face will give you a lift."

The lesser of all of Rivenbark's collections with the least number of wet-your-pants belly laughs, though the Bobbitt and Constipation Commercial chapters still sparkle and delight.

Rivenbark's second favorite book of mine. Stop Dressing if off the charts when it comes to humor, this is second in my book, and We're Just Like You is third. Haven't read Belle Weather yet and I can't wait!
If you haven't read Stop Dressing and you have a good sense of humor you're missing out!
