Ever laughed when you knew you shouldn't? Battled with Satan over chocolate? Forgotten to wear lipstick to the Garden Club meeting? Tried to define variorium? At times like these, what else can you do but Tuck Your Skirt in Your Panties and Run?
In her much awaited second book, award winning writer Lucy Adams, author of If Mama Don't Laugh, It Ain't Funny, takes readers on a roller-coaster ride through life's most embarrassing moments and delivers them safely on the other side. In her usual form, Adams gives readers an eye-watering, nose-snorting, giggling gift of a good time.
Join a 40 year-old bridesmaid on her journey to walk down the aisle, delve into a magnolia massacre, attend a hawg killin' with the communists, do some island living country style, and inflict vicarious revenge on the inventor of the balloon. Adams's wit will make you turn around and check your own underwear. Best of all we each can relax in the realization that we're not the only ones running with our skirts tucked in our panties.
Praise for Tuck Your Skirt In Your Panties and Run
"Humorist Lucy Adams has found her voice!" - Tripp Bowden, author of Freddie & Me: Life Lessons from Freddie Bennett, Augusta National's Legendary Caddy Master
"Pour a tall glass of sweet iced tea, sit back and relax on the front porch and savor the down-home humor of Ms. Adams, but be warned, the tea's just as cold coming out through your nose." - Rick Rantamacki, author of Mental Notes - From the Brink of Reality
"Reading anything written by Lucy Adams is like solving the problems of the world, particularly the world of family life, over a cup of coffee with your best girlfriend. Her prose takes the mundane, morose and maddening things that are part of everyday life and weaves them into stories that will have you laughing, crying and mostly realizing that yes, you are pretty much like everyone else." - Karin Calloway, editor, Augusta Family Magazine and author of Quick Cooking with Karin Calloway
