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.

    "Makes you see the funny side of life."
    If you could sum up If Life Is A Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing In The Pits? in three words, what would they be?

    A great listen for a pick me up. Makes you laugh. Reminds me of my life.

    "Gone too soon"

    Erma Bombeck's books were a staple when I was growing up I used to read her columns every tim they came out. And I laughed at them......knowing I was not the only kid doing that stuff. LOL. She also puts in a few life lessons for all of us.....but doesn't beat us over the head with them.

    Love you Erma, miss you......
