Title Of The Week

We all know those titles that make us do a double take just to make sure we read right?

This is one of them:

Stop Dressing Your Six-Year-Old Like a Skank: And Other Words of Delicate Southern Wisdom by Celia Rivenbark

Goodreads summary:

Celia Rivenbark’s essays about life in today’s South are like caramel popcorn – sweet, salty, and utterly irresistible. Celia Rivenbark is a master at summing up the South in all its glorious excesses and contradictions. 
In this collection of screamingly funny essays you’ll discover: How to get your kid into a character breakfast at Disneyworld (or run the risk of eating chicken out of a bucket with Sneezy), secrets of celebrity moms (don’t hate them because they’re beautiful when there are so many other reasons to hate them), and eBay addiction and why. It ain’t worth having if it ain’t on eBay (Whoa! Is that Willie Nelson’s face in your grits?) 

Why today’s children’s clothes make six-year-olds look like Vegas showgirls with an abundance of anger issues. 

And so much more! Rivenbark is an intrepid explorer and acid commentator on the land south of the Mason-Dixon line.

What I think:

Doubt I’d read it, but it does look interesting!

  1. Whoa! That is a double-take title. The book sounds really funny!
