Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

1 01 2012

Are you there god? It's me Margaret.

Psst. It's not just about God.

Looking for something to read, I picked up Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and other concerns).   It is an iBook that the Boss had already downloaded, so it was a relatively easy choice.   It is an auto-biography/rant/self-help book from Mindy Kaling, who plays the soft-spoken, Indian girl in The Office.  And it is unapologetically hilarious.   After I unsuccessfully suppressed a dozen audible chuckles, Sue looked at the clock (nearly 1am) and finally put an end to my late night literacy.   I acquiesced and turned out the light.   Dozing off to sleep, I couldn’t help thinking how much it felt like reading Are you there, God?  It’s me, Margaret.   Ladies, you know what I’m talking about.  Guys, if you know what I’m talking about, you won’t admit it.  In the words of Wikipedia, “Margaret also confronts many other pre-teen female issues, such as buying her first bra, having her first period, coping with belted sanitary napkins . . .”

Yes, I read that book.  Yes, I enjoyed it.  Yes, I remembered that it was about a girl getting her period. No, I didn’t remember that it had anything to do with God or religion.

In any case, if you haven’t read Mindy Kaling’s book (or Judy Blume’s for that matter), you should.

Team riders have been buggin’ me to do a baggy short.  It’s in the works for 2012.  Stay tuned.
