Laugh Out Loud:

40 Women Humorists Celebrate Then and Now…Before We Forget

by Allia Zobel Nolan

FIRST CHAPTER:
You know how people say they wish they had been born in a different era? Like they wish they had been a flapper, or grew up in the age of The Big Bopper and sock hops?

Not me.

I was born in early 1963 at precisely the right time. I was just the perfect age to experience the 80’s dance clubs. And, boy, did I love dance clubs. That’s where big-haired women and sockless men gathered. That crowd fit me like a glove.

TEASER: 
The waistband on these always seemed to cling precariously to my ample hips, while the crotch hovered somewhere just north of my knees like a mama kangaroo’s pouch. Other girls had problems, too. Occasionally, as one of them was walking down the hall, this waistband would suddenly roll down, picking up momentum until it reached her ankles where it would roll down, picking up momentum until it reached her ankles where it trapped and tripped her. Once in a while she’d be joined on the floor by one of her peers who had plummeted off her platform shoes.

  1. Fascinating! I also feel as though I were born at just the right time. Here’s mine: “DON’T LOOK FOR ME”

    • I feel like I was born in the perfect time for me. I loved the music and clothes of the 60’s and 70’s. I still listen to CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top etc. and still burn incense. I’m guess I’m still a hippie in my head 🙂

  2. LOL, sounds fun. I’m happy I was born in the early 50s, being a child was so much simpler back then IMO.

  3. Sounds like a real mood lifter!

  4. Great start to this book. I think I’d love to read this one. It would lift me, I think.

  5. Wow, this sounds like fun. My wishlist is growing by leaps and bounds today! I’m adding this one too!

  6. The teaser made me giggle a bit.

  7. That was a great teaser. Definitely need to keep this one in mind when I need a funny read.

  8. Looks like a great book!
