Mary Ann Hoyt is back, with her second collection of humorous essays. Her relatable stories and anecdotes are full of dry wit and satire, with a sprinkling of poignant moments that will have you smiling, laughing, or maybe even shedding a tear. Embracing the human condition with humility and humor, she tells the story of how, one day in 1957, she was the reason her second grade teacher had a bad day, with 55 kids in her classroom and vomit in aisle 4. She relates her experience of being reprimanded as a student nurse for yelling Good luck! to her patient as he was being wheeled down the hall to the OR. Apparently, good luck is not the appropriate thing to say when someone's about to go under the knife. Her mothering mistakes have been immortalized in photos, of little blistered lips covered in zinc oxide at the beach; while her 30 second walk up the aisle with her mother of the groom hair disaster is a memory preserved in wedding videos. Mary Ann's senior years continue to give her fodder to write about, like how she ended up under a recliner, and her close call with the law because of a chicken. She does her mediocre best to catch up with technology--barely able to hold her own while Zooming and FaceTiming family and friends. Mary Ann finds find something to smile about in almost any situation, including the pandemic. She wants her readers to know that humor is a wonderful God-given coping mechanism worth nurturing. If you liked her first book: In Heaven There's No Money, No Stuff--and No Porta-Potties, you will enjoy this one, too.
