Book Review : Tuck Your Skirt in Your Panties and Run by Lucy Adams

Tuck Your Skirt in Your Panties and RunWhen your day is blue and upside down, Tuck Your Skirt In Your Panties and Run!!

Product Description -(Amazon)

Ever laughed when you knew you shouldn't?  Battled with Satan over chocolate?  Forgotten to wear lipstick to the Garden Club meeting?  Tried to define variorium?  At times like these, what else can you do but Tuck Your Skirt in Your Panties and Run?
In her much awaited second book, award winning writer Lucy Adams, author of If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny, takes readers on a roller-coaster ride through life's most embarrassing moments and delivers them safely on the other side.  In her usual form, Adams gives readers an eye-watering, nose-snorting, giggling gift of a good time.
Join a 40 year-old bridesmaid on her journey to walk down the aisle, delve into a magnolia massacre, attend a hawg killin' with the communists, do some island living country style, and inflict vicarious revenge on the inventor of the balloon.  Adams's wit will make you turn around and check your own underwear. Best of all we each can relax in the realization that we're not the only ones running with our skirts tucked in our panties.

My thoughts:
Each themed chapter holds  tales of those unforgettable  moments in life, from marriage, to family to chickens, hehe!! Some stories are just the little things and some are  major catastrophes that make you chuckle.  I don't know about you but I tend to read so many serious, sad, dark fiction that this book was a much needed respite.  I have started this trend now that when something goes awry, I end it with saying " Tuck Your Skirt In Your Panties and Run"!!!  ( my husband thinks I'm nuts)
 This is a definite must read.

I loved this one, too, Natalie, and I think we're wise to read something light and funny in between all those dark ones....

Hi Natalie, sounds like fun! I don't wear skirts so I'll just drop my pants and run! LOL
