Publisher's Summary

We all have our personal phobias and white-knuckle moments. The title story of Irrational Fear tells of Davis's mother's fear of snakes and the way she eventually got even with him for making fun of her. (She always came out on top.)
The second story, "The Red Coat", tells why his father and his father's brother-in-law finally stopped playing Christmas tricks on their sisters and wives.

Here's another hilarious send-up from one of America's favorite storytellers.

Crazy Funny Tale of Snakes, Red Coats and Family

These short tales by Donald Davis will have you nearly rolling in the floor with laughter. Clean stories of growing up in a different time, before seat belts, and when family was valued highly, they are both heartwarming AND hilarious. Hardly any subject is safe from ridicule, including the need to visit grandparents to make sure they aren't dead 😂 since they had no telephone. I hope that audible will add more of Donald Davis' shorts to the Plus Catalog, because they are truly my favorites!
