The Witty and the Wise

So there is this really hot book out on Amazon called: Wit and Wisdom from the Parents of Special Needs Kids: Mostly True Stories of Life on the Spectrum.  Seeing how I am neither witty or wise I am still quite surprised that I am in it.  Shocked even.  Maybe it's the mostly true part...I don't know.

Anyway, this is my shameless plug.  Go on, go clickety-click on that book right up there, or over there on the right, and see what I have to say.

I'll wait.

All done???


You'll love it.  I know you will.

Now can you please tell me what I said?

See, I passed along my brain-to-keyboard-mostly-true post a while ago and now I totally forget what I wrote.  I mean really, it hasn't been that long, but since I live in dog years it feels like it was ancient history. That, and I forget where I put my cell phone every day so I obviously can't be expected to remember what came out of my brain years ago now can I?

No, in all seriousness, I am honored beyond belief that Lynn asked me to be a part of this endeavor.  And that she actually considered what I wrote good enough to be among the best out here?  I'm humbled.  Truly humbled.

Clearly bribing her with copious amount of alcohol before she sent it to the publisher worked.

See, even now its impossible for me to be serious.  Lord, what's wrong with me?

And yes, you may go ahead and answer that question in comment section.

Because that's the kind of friend I am.  I'm good like that.


  1. I've seen a couple of others also showing off their writing skills in this book, and taske my hat off to you all. Once I am home and got secure internet, I intend to purchase a copy and have a good old read. Well done! x

  2. Why does shipping and handling have to cost so much? I've been waiting for that book to arrive for at least 1.5 dog years!

    And the alcohol? Hmmm, well that explains it! She read my essay right after you got her to publish yours! Yay for teamwork!! ;)

  3. Wow! Will we still be ableto read your blog for free? How great thta you were chosen to be part of such a great endeavor!

  4. There are millions of people--yes, millions--who would kill to be included in a book. By kill, I mean spend copious amounts of cash on alcohol. I mean, it worked for you!


  5. Oh I need this book! And CONGRATS!!!

  6. Woot, woot! I know what's on my reading list next!

  7. "Lord, what's wrong with me?"

    You never want to ask somebody that. They will try to impose their version of normal on you.

  8. Congrats! That is awesome. definitely will have to read it

  9. That's great Lizbeth! What a great collaboration!

  10. Congratulations! I've heard about the book and I'm glad you're in it. I love your writing!

  11. You are witty and wise. And, some times a wise ass. You're the whole package my friend.

  12. ooh...congrats..can't wait to read your piece! I can't remember exactly what I wrote either!! Maybe it's better that!

    xx jazzy

  13. Congratulations and I can't wait until we can get hold of this on our side of the big pond :)

  14. Awesome! I'm actually in it, too! I was so humbled and touched when they asked me, and surprised when my post made it in, but now that I have seen the list of bloggers included, I'm astounded. I can't believe I will be published along with the likes of all you guys! Wow.

  15. Yay- you're in it too! I'd know that if I'd read it, but I expect my copy to arrive some time next year. Can't wait though, and congratulations!


Comments make me all squishy but remember to be nice. If you're not nice then what you said goes *poof.* There's your warning.
