Summary

This collection of 45 short, humorous essays is for anyone who has ever been annoyed or amused by the modern world. From everyday frustrations like those in "It was Here a Minute Ago," about misplacing keys and favorite recipes, to more eccentric experiences like those in "How I Found God in Limbo-Land," about sharing a Bermuda resort with evangelical square dancers, Rose Mula knows how to laugh at herself and the world she inhabits.
