Stand-up comic and comedy writer Carol Leifer faced a critical dilemma and had only two options: either continue sharing her greatest childhood memory (seeing the Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1966) or lie about her age. But the choice soon became clear: I see now that when you deny your age, you deny yourself, and when you lie about your age, you become your inauthentic twin. But most important, when you lie about your age, they win. (And of course by ‘they, ‘ I mean the terrorists). Now, in this uproarious book, Leifer reveals all about her age, her outlook, her life philosophy—no holds barred. On technology: I am overwhelmed by anything that involves a cord. On motherhood: Never put your baby’s length on a birth announcement. It’s a baby, not a marlin. On collagen injections: Your lips are not meant to be flotation devices for your face in case it capsizes. On tattoos If you plan on having your lover’s name tattooed on your arm, always leave room before it for a possible I Hate down the road. On etiquette: Never refer to a woman as ma’am, even if she’s ninety years old. Nobody likes it After years of stand-up and a wave of successful television shows, Carol Leifer finally (and hilariously) puts it all down on paper—the wise thoughts, witty stories, and wonderfully way-out observations guaranteed to have you nodding in agreement and laughing out loud in sheer delight.
