it was ok
Read in November, 2008 , read count: 1

What I learned from this book: Don't own ducks. Or parrots. And when someone doesn't listen to you when you say no, leave that person, before they start adopting turkeys too.

Tarte was amusing at first, and probably would have continued to amuse me if I'd continued to read his book a couple pages at a time during my bus commute. But I finished it all this weekend (I'm getting low on reading material), and it was a bit much, all at once.

His obsession with the animals, coupled with the repeated Zanax (or was it Zoloft?) references stopped being amusing, and started being just repetitive after a while. Maybe I just don't get it because I'm not an animal owner.

Also, thinking about all that bird poop really grossed me out.

Then again, we had three turtles roaming around the house all day today, and that didn't bother me. Go figure.
