Book Review | Wrinkles, Waistlines, and Wet Pants
Author: Jeanne Kraus
Wrinkles, Waistlines, and Wet Pants. What wonderful writing!
OK, OK, OK. Seriously this book is a riot. What happens when we turn 50? Hopefully, we develop a fraction of the sense of humor of Jeanne Kraus. Also, you start receiving mail from funeral homes, encouraging you to plan ahead. Krauss notes, It was unanimous; the world was viewing me as ancient if the funeral homes were waiting in line for me to drop dead. She then recounts a gynecological exam by a toupe-wearing doctor: The sight of this hairy flattened piece near my most intimate private parts makes me wonder if that is how a real merkin would look. Note to Reader: merkin is a pubic hairpiece. I do not know why a person would own a merkin or how it is attached. These questions and more will lead to many wasted hours of Internet merkin research. Come on. That’s some amusing stuff.
I spent a good bit of my reading time giggling away, like a silly 10-year-old at a slumber party. Wrinkles, Waistlines, and Wet Pants is outrageous. Krauss’ wit is clever and perceptive. Have a few laughs; get a copy of this book and wait for the hilarity to ensue. You won’t be waiting long.
