First impressions

I received my copy of James Lileks' Mommy Knows Worst today in the mail. Naturally, I ripped it out of its cardboard packaging and examined it immediately. It's beautifully illustrated and is paperback bound. Plopping myself onto my bed, gently nestling my sore, broken arm onto a pillow at my side, I began to delve into the book.
It made me laugh out loud just a few pages in. This, despite the fact that I am not a mother or a father or any sort of parent to anyone whatsoever. Some people will read this book from front to back in one or two days. That's not my style. I like to take my sweet time so the humor is not forced upon me. When I've finished, I'll write a full review.
