Welcome to the Funny Farm The All-True Misadventures of a Woman on the Edge Author:Karen Scalf Linamen What can a woman do for an encore after she backs over her husband’s new laptop with her car? — How long does it take to defrost a turkey with a hair dryer? — What do you say to a house guest who, before going to the bathroom, has to fish two wooden blocks and a set of car keys from your commode? — There is no end to the sources of frustratio... more »n, challenge, disaster—and humor!—in a woman’s life, and there is no one more skilled at finding the merriment and wisdom in the everyday foibles we all share than Karen Linamen.
Welcome to the Funny Farm guides you on a side-splitting, hopeful, and entertaining tour of the challenges women face—and in true, tongue-in-cheek Linamen style, no topic is off limits! These fifty readings, originally published on the Women of Faith web site (www.women-of-faith.com), cover everything from baby showers to cell phones, holiday frenzy to Hamburger Helper, dumb blonde jokes to well-woman exams.
