This book starts off when the author goes on a Caribbean
vacation. He gives a humorous account of his arrival and
time spent there. Then he gives us his thoughts on his
trip to Florida and is quite funny explaining the Barbie
phenomenon. How girls can spend hours getting the dolls
changed and set up with all their accoutrements (95%
preparation and 5% playing time.) He talks about soaps:
Daze of Our Lives, Misguiding Lights, While the World Burns
with an exaggerated flair. Now I know why drive thrus were
invented. It's the only sane way of doing ones errands
when you're sick and have to drag a 2 year old along for
I found this book a bit disjointed to read but as it was
supposed to be the author's random thoughts I guess that's
understandable. Some of the sections I thought were not
funny at all like the one about the Pilgrims and how
Thanksgiving started. The one about the disappearing
waiter and the Tossed in Space I found incomprehensible.
The one about psychics and their hotline and the
superficiality in casual conversations I quite enjoyed.
If you're looking for a light humorous read then you
would enjoy this book. You can pick it up read a bit and
put it down till next time you were in the mood for a quick
read with a touch of humor.
