WELP, THE DAY HAS COME!
Something that a gaggle of people have been working incredibly hard on has come to fruition!
I AM IN A BOOK!
I don’t know about you, but I find that shit pretttttty impressive. I woke up this morning and gave myself a pat on the back. Now, I am high-fiving all my internet sisters who worked incredibly hard on Crystal Ponti’s new book, Only Trollops Shave Above The Knee: The Crazy, Brilliant, and Unforgettable Lessons We’ve Learned from Our Mothers.
The book is a collection of authors sharing different stories about lessons they learned from their mother. I guarantee you, it does not disappoint!
I’ll give you a little sneak peek into my portion of the anthology…
Was That On Sale?
I think the first word to drop out of my mouth as a baby was ‘SALE’. I’m fairly certain that my mother’s frugal tendencies were programmed into my brain at the time of conception.
As a young child, I remember roaming through store clearance racks and popping out to scare the shit out of my mother and grandmother. My childlike behavior was quickly corrected and I was trained and overly educated about the beauty of a ‘sale’. I knew what the yellow tags meant, the green tags, and for the love of all things holy, what the RED tag meant. Red tags were the heavy hitters. Red tags translating to: FIRE SALE; an already discounted item that was now reduced by an even larger percentage—AKA the jackpot of sales.
By grade-school, I was well on the ‘clearance bandwagon’ with my mother and would hunt for deals with her each weekend.
New school shoes? We had that shit covered.
Broken crockpot? BAM! 50% off coupon plus an early bird doorbuster sale!
My mother and I were on.top.of.it. We made the best mother-daughter doorbuster duo.
I was the only kid in the 3rd grade who could tell you where to buy an entire Cornishware dish-set for under $40.00….
This book is chalk full of amazing stories and lessons detailed by some of the most talented writers. I am so honored to be in in their company with my little story tucked neatly between several beautiful others.
