FEEL MY HAIR PAIN?

OMG

OMG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A really bad hair day makes you want to pull your hair out.

We’ve all had them. Triple digit humidity makes them worse. No root spray. No gel. No hair stylist on tap.

Before you know it, you look like Moe from The Three Stooges.

And, of course, that’s exactly when you have a rare opportunity to have your photo taken with one of your favorite humorists and writing idols… Pulitzer Prize winning author Dave Barry.

Why didn’t I just cut those horrendous bangs myself with the corkscrew in the hotel room?

And where’s a propeller hat when you need one?

Dave Barry

Dave wrote a funny book with Alan Zweibel called Lunatics.

“Soon to be a major motion picture” with Steve Carrell.

“Next Time I Move, They’ll Carry Me Out in a Box”

Weekend Funny 5 – Funny New Book ALERT!

Guess what? I’m moving this week. So this book is perfect… Michele feels my pain and yours.

For everyone who’s ever moved, sold a house, bought a house…

Weekend Funny Five

5 Things about Next Time I Move, They’ll Carry Me Out in a Box by Michele Wojciechowski

1. If war is hell, moving is a close second. When you put your home on the market, it has to look “livable,” but not “lived in.” Confused? So was I…

2. My husband is still addicted to The Magic Eraser. But it can’t make dirty underwear disappear.

3. Famous folks in the comedy world think my book is funny. Who? Bruce Cameron, Jenny Hagel, Tracy Beckerman, Jim Mendrinos, Jim Higley, to name just a few. Alan Zweibel, award-winning comedy writer, Thurber Prize winner, and co-author (with Dave Barry) of Lunatics writes, “Michele Wojciechowski’s humor is so smart, insightful, and witty that for a moment I thought I was reading something I’d written.”

4. Famous folks in the real estate market think it’s funny. My Realtor, Sandy Smith, even wrote the Foreword. Margaret M. Kelly, CEO RE/MAX writes, “Anyone who’s selling a home or considering it will enjoy the humor and candor in Next Time I Move, They’ll Carry Me Out in a Box…”

5. I’m a giver. To launch Next Time I Move I’m doing a fundraising comedy night Saturday, September 15 at The Catholic High School of Baltimore. Proceeds will benefit the school.
