Book Club - Let's Pretend This Never Happened
Jenny Lawson realized that the most mortifying moments of our lives—the ones we’d like to pretend never happened—are in fact the ones that define us. In the #1 New York Times bestseller, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson takes readers on a hilarious journey recalling her bizarre upbringing in rural Texas, her devastatingly awkward high school years, and her relationship with her long-suffering husband, Victor. Chapters include: “Stanley the Magical, Talking Squirrel”; “A Series of Angry Post-It Notes to My Husband”; “My Vagina Is Fine. Thanks for Asking”; “And Then I Snuck a Dead Cuban Alligator on an Airplane.” Pictures with captions (no one would believe these things without proof) accompany the text.
I thought this book was freaking hilarious. Like laugh-out-loud funny. I think I read somewhere that most of this is already on her blog, The Bloggess, but since I have never read her blog, I thought it was some of the funniest shiznit I have ever read. The stories about her and her husband were priceless. Some it was a little unbelievable (as in, if this had happened to me, my husband would totally leave me) but it was still an excellent read. I recommend it and I have to say if you have never read this post before (about Beyonce the chicken), at least read that much. It is just one of the stories in the book.
