3 Garnets Giveaway: "If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny" Cotton Cap [CLOSED]

Look who stopped by 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires on her 2009 If Mama Book Tour! It's Lucy Adams . . . wife, mother, teacher, humorist, columnist, blogger, and now published book author. Her first book, titled If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny, is a collection of Lucy's funniest columns that are sure to have you laughing.

Check out this excerpt from the book . . .

Insanity Plea

The doctor announced, “It’s a girl.” I demanded that he check again. And, yet again. After he convinced me that determining the gender of a newborn human isn’t as dicey as calling it for a kitten, I turned to my spouse and said, “She’s the cherry on top.”

Since then, she’s been the cherry who broke the bowl, not that she shattered me single-handedly. Three older brothers aided and abetted her.

Thus, I blame the bulk of my mental disorders on lack of privacy in the lavatory. For example, one morning, my daughter swung open the loo door, asking, “Why do you always look at magazines in the bathroom?”

“Because it’s the only quiet place I can find,” I replied.

“Is that why you sit on the toilet? To read?”

“Yes,” I said, flipping the pages, ignoring her in hopes that she would go away.

She didn’t. “Then why do you have your pants on your ankles?”
