the story of an invisible girl
Book Six
This was a fun collection of short newspaper columns bound together in a book. Each column was only three pages or so, but there were lots of them. It was loaned to me by a coworker.

If I Were a Man, I'd Marry Me, by P.S. Wall

Like the title implies, it's mostly "girl talk". But it's fun and sarcastic girl talk, about everything from relationships to cars to pets to family to travel... and of course more about men and relationships. Very humorous, very fun read. Easy to pick up and put down, since each individual story is so short.

A quote on dating younger men:
"Guys are like dogs. You wish you could take them all home when they're puppies. But after they've howled all night and slobbered all over everything, you come to realize that the ones who are already trained are much easier to live with."

(Hey, I'm not making any actual judgments here... my boy is younger than me! But the book made me laugh.)

Heh, it looks like a fun book!

Men are SO doggy it's not funny... I lost a job once because, in one of my frequent bouts of 'I'm so bored I'm about to cry' I wrote a short speculative piece, matching each male in the firm to a breed of dog. Then forgot about it and left it on the office computer's hard drive, instead of emailing it to myself at the end of the day and deleting it from the computer...

Three months later I got a letter from the Senior Partner, quite a nice guy, with a print-out of the offending article attached. In the letter, he said I could doubtless see why my services would not be required again.
And I'd been NICE about him, compared him to a Doberman!

My Asperger friend of 4 years is a perfect human labrador. He even walks like one. He literally wuffs and barks at times... sweet guy, but weird. VERY disconcerting in company.
