MIDLIFE CABERNET – BOOK REVIEW
NOT YOUR MOMMA’S MENOPAUSE!
Sometimes I do really dumb things and this was one of them. When I attended the BAM Conference I met the wonderfully hilarious Elaine Ambrose. This is one woman I would love to sit down with over a bottle of wine or whiskey. I have a feeling Elaine would be up for either. I snapped some pictures for her and she graciously gave me a copy of her book Midlife Cabernet.
I stuck the book in my computer bag and went on out to break. I had been feeling rough and headed toward the restrooms, but there was a line a mile long. I decided to duck out early and go back to my room to lie down for a bit. That night I got pretty sick so we packed everything up and headed home.I haven’t traveled anywhere with my laptop since, so there the book stayed until last week when I was reading one of Elaine’s posts “How To Turn A Flat Tire Into A Fulfilled Speech” and I saw her famous finger puppets and that reminded me of the book! Of course, I found it right were I had left it and I started reading it immediately. I am so glad I did.
I was in desperate need of a few good laughs and what I got was side-busting, bladder-leaking, feet-in-the-air funny! In the first paragraph there is a place were Elaine says “Instead of sashaying down the aisle to wedding bliss, I detoured over to Malfunction Junction.” and I was hooked! I read the book in a day in a half I just couldn’t put it down.
Whether you are a fellow midlifer, someone heading in that direction, or even if midlife is something long gone you will still enjoy every single word written in it! I haven’t laughed like that in a really long time. If you haven’t read this book, this is your chance to see for yourself! Grab a
glass bottle of wine sit back and enjoy the ride!
Appreciate the good, laugh at the crazy, and deal with the rest.
I love you momma!
