Although he now admits to not remembering saying it, noted columnist Bill Press once commented, "Things are not as bad as they seem. They are worse." In a collection of humorous essays, the author proves this true. With the eyes and bad temperament of a curmudgeon, he gripes about things from the latest fad of therapeutic adult coloring books to the shrinking space aboard airplanes, where passengers have to "grease up their hips to squeeze through an aisle the width of a capillary." Using an irreverent but amusing style, the author takes on everything that irritates him to no end. Financial institutions, tattoos, drug companies, and slobbering pets all draw his critical fire. Commiserate or take pleasure in his frustration when dealing with backyard pests or his anxious thoughts of having to share the road with people who "lack the proper ratio of gray matter to Chevy Silverado mass." While acknowledging that this book may tick a lot of people off, it is the author's hope that it does so with a smile...or a smirk, but honestly admits he'll take whatever he can get.
About the Author
Tom Luddecke insists he has finally come to terms with living in the third smallest state in the Union, though admits to still experiencing border envy upon visiting others. He is a recent winner of the Funniest Writer in America contest, an event he sponsors and, and for obvious reasons, holds close to the vest. At this stage of his life, he feels he has nothing left to disprove. The author's stories haunt both the pages of several magazines as well as his family's nightmares. His first book, Off to Today's Adventure: Stories from a Duck and Cover Kid, relates his amusing experiences growing up in the 50s and 60s.
