Publisher's Summary

Unfiltered. Unapologetic. Older, but not wiser, Lancaster goes back to basics in this hilarious essay collection about everything from taking community policing classes to accidentally getting high with her waiter after a fancy dinner. These are the tales she'd tell if she met you in a bar... if she weren't too lazy to put on pants and go to a bar. Offering advice ranging from how to remain happily married to a man who refuses to blow his damn nose already to not creating An Incident at the cheese counter during an attempt at Whole30, she's you, only louder. As she details the chaos that will surely ensue if she has to learn to operate one more television remote control, you'll want to settle in and pour yourself a tall one. Because what's more fun than hearing a friend share her favorite stories?

Another winner with bonus appearances by her husband

I love everything Jen writes (and if you haven’t read her YA novel, Gatekeepers, you should). When she self published this book I was a bit disappointed because I was afraid she wouldn’t have the chance to do an audio version. It was worth the wait! The addition of Fletch at the end of some chapters was a happy bonus.

Laugh Out Loud Funny

You can't go wrong with a Jen story telling book of her adventures, or misadventures, as it sometimes is.

self absorbed

I find that this book along with her previous book, Such A Pretty Fat, has a lot of padding in it. This book starts out decent but the issue with the author is that her self absorption is eventually so exhausting that you can't take in the book all at once. You can only handle it in small doses, and that's when there's actually content and not just her rambling to meet what feels like some word quota. I would call this book a low on content high on fluff bit of nonsense. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it's not a good thing either.

What a Riot

I laughed out loud countless times! Jen articulates and embellishes her stories in the perfect manner to extract the most humor from every situation. I throughly enjoyed this book and the fact that Jen and Fletch are the narrators made it even better! Jen and Fletch, I want to play pooly ball with you guys! Y’all stay classy! 💋

Authors voice grates on my nerves. Condescending.

Horrible. Authors voice grates on my nerves. Condescending-is she trying to sound like someone's overbearing, poor, air- of -wealth relative, that no one wants to ever see?!? Horrible.

Love Jen’s memoirs

I live for Jen Lancaster‘s books! She makes me laugh out loud. As a dog foster mom and mom to a “bully breed” dog, I love hearing stories about her pets.
