Publisher's Summary

You can count on best-selling author Erma Bombeck to show you the funny side of any situation - no matter how ordinary or difficult. In this collection of heartwarming essays, she ponders what it takes to survive the rigors of contemporary living. As Erma shares her worries about the American way of life, she'll have you chuckling right out loud. You'll view cherished traditions such as the joys of motherhood, TV game shows, family togetherness, and the overworked phrase "Have a good day!" in a completely different light. So get ready to trade your stale outlook for a hilarious new one.
Whether America's first lady of humor is poking fun at family life or taking a poignant look at the difficulties of aging, you'll laugh until the tears stream down your face. And with Barbara Rosenblat's rib-tickling performance, you'll feel as if you are sharing a cup of coffee with Erma herself.

Isn't that outdated. It's still funny stuff

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they wanted to be amused, and especially if they were a parent, they'll like this.

Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't. She astounded me with her delivery. She could turn even a dull sentence into something witty, so this material was really quite funny with her at the microphone.

Any additional comments?

Bombeck's humor still holds up, though not quite as sharply as it did when it was originally written. You'll still get many chuckles out of this.
