“Of course, when your kids are little the million little things become a zillion little things, and having a pap smear actually begins counting as some “quiet time,” I mean, just think about it. In the doctor’s office there’s usually coffee and some good gossip magazines. Then you get your own room where you get to lie down and put your feet up. So really, it’s practically a spa day.”
“Oh my God, you all have CRS? What’s that?”
“Can’t Remember Shit,” we say in unison.”
“and the truth is, Jodi and I become easy and slutty once we’ve kicked back a few drinks. Not easy and slutty in the sexual way, but in the dessert way.” “Gary and Dave order only coffee. They’ve gone evangelical on us.”
Regarding Cheerios, ” The commercial says it lowers cholesterol, so I figure it’s more medicine than food and therefore the calories don’t count.”
Syd Arthur is a forty something empty nester who is clearly searching for something. She is a nice Jewish girl from a nice family who has a lovely husband and college aged daughter. This book is her quest to figure herself out. She tries yoga, yoga retreats and Buddhism (and the gift shops associated with each) all to the dismay of her famiy and her Mah Jong group. But she finally figures out who she is!
This is a “happy”- a book that shows you not to take yourself too seriously. Enjoy!
