Erma Bombeck and A little humor in April

One of my favorite comedians is Erma Bombeck.  Her unique real-life humor spices timeless heart-felt jolts; a painted reality of the joys of everyday American life.

I’ve exercised with women so thin that buzzards followed them to their cars.

If a man watches three football games in a row, he should be declared legally dead.

In general my children refuse to eat anything that hasn’t danced in television.

Most women put off entertaining until the kids are grown.

My kids always perceived the bathroom as a place where you wait it out until all the groceries are unloaded from the car.

With my time at a premium right now, I just wanted to share a laugh, or two. Hope your day is full of smiles and fun. And if your a mom buried in diapers (especially) don’t take yourself too seriously, it all happens way too fast.

    LOVED the quotes. I had the great pleasure of speaking at the Erma Bombeck Humor Writer’s Workshop this past April. Erma’s son, daughter-in-law and 13 year old granddaughter were in the audience of my workshop. The whole experience was a dream, especially to honor such a remarkable woman, who would probably argue that she was anything but.
    All best,

      Donna, Let me respond by saying THANK YOU for the fabulous workshops at SCBWI-MI Spring Conference last weekend. I had the privilege of attending two and appreciate the in-depth, fast-paced, thorough instruction–frosted with gobs of writing humor! And cute, little, Sammy…gets a big high-five from me.
      Have fun! Michelle
