BlogHer Book Club: Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

Let's Pretend This Never HappenedQuick upfront confession. Before reading Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, I knew who The Bloggess was. I’d even met her at BlogHer ’11. I was familiar with her large, expensive chicken & I follow her on twitter. And this book has set in my Amazon shopping cart unpurchased for a while. But I’m not a faithful blog reader of hers.

If her blog is much like the book {& I’d guess it is}, I’ve been missing out. I finished Let’s Pretend This Never Happened last Wednesday & spent a few days really wishing it hadn’t ended. I missed her ‘voice’, her stories in the days that followed. Because she’s funny & totally out there on display in a no holds back kinda way that makes you want to run away from all the chaos & yet sucks you right in. I finished Let’s Pretend feeling like a friend who’d experienced her memoir right along with her.

I’m thankful my childhood was not spent wearing bread bag shoes in rural TX, but I feel like I missed out that I didn’t experience cow fertility lessons amongst other HS classes available to Jenny.

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened had me laughing out loud. The HR notes killed me. Her post-its to her dear sweet oh-so-understanding husband, slayed me. I could write the ones able hanging up towels correctly! And the chapter on her pup & the birds made me appreciate friendships while making me glad I life safely in the suburbs!
