I laughed so much that I nearly dropped my Kindle…on more than one occasion.
I know I’m a bit late to the reviewing party, this book having been published in 2005, but I wasn’t reading much then; I was too busy working at a late night radio talk show offering advice to the criminally inane.
This was a stunning read. Chelsea has a very unique sense of humor, one that is fortunately not lost on me. Anyone with a Kindle will note that it provides ‘international community highlights’. One reader can see everyone else’s favorite passages. While most of the readers favorites were about Chelsea’s ‘truisms’ I found myself highlighting passages which I found the most humorous (these were the Kindle near-dropped moments mentioned earlier). Here I offer a few quotes: (The comments in parentheses are my own.)
Page 4: ‘I don’t make appointments to get hit. Plus, this was your idea and Dad should hit you both times.’ (I love the logic.)
Page 43: ‘My sisters are a very interesting duo. One of them is a converted Mormon. The other is sane.’
Page 90: “No, no, it’s ok.“ I said. “You can talk to other girls, but when I leave, you’re coming with me.”
Page 137: ‘He responded with a scream that sounded very similar to a cat getting g*ngb*nged.’ (I’m strangely curious to know what this sounds like.)
Page 156: “Is your name Kevin?” I asked him. This was my new favorite pickup line.
“No,” he said.
“Really? Do I look familiar to you?”
“A little bit,” he told me. That meant he was interested. (Clever Girl!)
Page 193: ‘I had never been outside this early before and I didn’t like the crowd.’
Page 200: ‘I started going over baby names in my head. I liked the name Lucifer, but only for a girl.’
As a final thought; for all those who enjoy successful and failed one night stands this is a necessary read. I’m looking forward to reading her other works.
