Sometimes you just need a good laugh when reading.  I love books based on real life humor! Who hasn’t ever spilled something on shirt, in the wrong spot and at the wrong time? Who hasn’t stuffed up a toilet either at home or at a friends? Come on, you know you have! The author did a wonderful job of discussing these predicaments that can arise. Some of the responses are not really helpful, but I think that is the whole point. Some of the best chapters were on getting Dog Poop stuck in your shoe and dealing with flatulence!  I laughed several times with this book.  A great read to get a good laugh and unwind from other serious reading. A great laugh out loud book!

Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
