My wife belongs to a book club. One of the recent books was this one by the famed cartoonist Cathy Guisewite of Kathy fame. I’d read a number of action novels recently and thought a humorous book would be a good change of pace.
“None of this has gone as planned. I became a full-time mom at the very moment my daughter decided to reject all input from anyone over age thirty. I became a full-time daughter the moment my parents announced they would barricade the front door if I tried to bring in anyone or anything to assist them. I got older, which I hadn’t factored in, and became even more obnoxious and belligerent than my child or my parents, incapable of even committing to exercising five minutes a day.”
The book had some rather funny parts as noted above, but most was not to my taste and humor. I should have figured that out beforehand as I never bonded with her Kathy character. I’m more of a Dilbert/Far Side fan. Not to be sexist, but this one seems to have been written for the ladies. I didn’t enjoy it.
PS…I also LOVE Calvin and Hobbes!
