Let's Pretend This Never Happened
About this deal
I already have to wait months on end for other books to come out, then I have to wait for those books to be turned into movies and then wait for those movies to be released. To use the word f**king as an adjective three times in a blog post is one thing; but to use it at the same pace for 366 pages does get tiresome. Watching Lawson discuss her teenage and young adult life was something I could relate to and laugh at, at the same time.

Way to go, Jenny, you just made me realize that I’m probably way more fucked up and weird than I already thought I was! Eccentric in some ways like her father, in other ways, he is a stable influence she can always rely on to make sensible decisions. I have no way to compare it, but whenever I let slip the bizarre things I'm thinking about, people seem alarmed and step away slowly, so I think "disorientating" is probably fair as well. Yet Lawson also relishes exaggerative storytelling, spinning yarns of her childhood and early adulthood that seem so unbelievable they could hardly be made up.I don’t think it’ll arrive in time for my mum for Xmas, so I might have to give her a card with Copernicus on it, with “I owe you one book, here’s a hug in the meantime…” That way I’ll also be able to read it before I give it to her (carefully, so as not to crease the spine). I was sitting on my mom’s lap when my dad made a hard left, the door popped open, and I was tossed out like a sack full of kittens. If someone in your book club even mentions Snausages or leukemia, they are a liar and you should make them leave and probably you should frisk them as you’re throwing them out, because they may have stolen some of your silverware. Regretting You by Colleen Hoover was without doubt a great read though, although not my absolute favorite of hers.
I have no memory of this at all, but if it did happen I suspect I was probably waving it around like some kinda awesomely patriotic, flaming baton. You shouldn't be laughing and probably you'll go to hell for laughing, so maybe you shouldn't read it.
It did, however, open up an opportunity for Lawson to find the humor in the strange shame–spiral that is her life, and we are all the better for it. Though I ended up listening to this book in large sessions (it’s a long way between where my parents live and I live), but I think it might work best in small doses. If you try to make a shrimp boil, but the bag of spices bursts, and so you just toss it in along with whatever spices you can find in the pantry--you can make homemade pepper spray.
