This might have been a 5 when I was younger. Or it would make a really good performance to go see. Anyway, I enjoy authors that can take all the weird and mundane experiences of their life amusing for the benefit of the rest of us.

We all have this stuff in our lives...how come our stories aren't as funny?

I checked out the audio book of this one, which I recommend as a great part of Kevin Kling's writing is that he is a wonderful storyteller. The audio book has the pauses and expressions that add so much to each chapter

A bit of a mixed bag. A few had more language than I would have liked.
