Book 3 of 100

Apathy and Other Small Victories by Paul Neilan

Whenever I force The Mister to stop in the middle of reading whatever 19th Century seafaring novel he has in his hands so that I can read aloud a passage from my book, it usually means that my aforementioned book is pretty darn humorous. The more often I stop him is directly proportional to the book’s overall hilarity. Now when I can’t get through the passage I’m trying to read because I keep cracking up so bad the words coming out of my mouth sound something like “Ebid sheee. Iah. Ebid. Bwaw!”, well you get the picture.

Apathy and Other Small Victories
did inspire a hysterical laughing fit at one particular scene, but not at every page’s turn. Still, it was otherwise amusing in a very above average sort of way.

Excellent review of an excellent book. I'm going back to the bookshelf to see if I can hook you again!

Your uncle and former boss, the one with the 'split personality', indicated that you did not want telephone calls from mushy inlaws, outlaws or just plain laws. However, it is also just as possible he was trying to justify saving himself the cost of long distance phone calls from Potatoland. If true, where I am from we that type of person a "Cheap bas....s". I don't know what they call them in potatoland?

Anyway, he also indicated that wellwishers should instead write. I am therefore writing, at this time, to immediately and forthwith advise, instruct and cajole you to promtly and without further delay, be swell; er a, that is, be well; anyway, as soon as possible!

The blockcity skydiving knothead cousin!
