In uproarious, brand-new pieces,
Barry tackles everything from family trips, bat mitzvah parties and
dating (he’s serious about that title: “When my daughter can legally
commence dating—February 24, 2040—I intend to monitor her closely, even
if I am deceased”) to funeral instructions (“I would like my eulogy to
be given by William Shatner”), the differences between male and female
friendships, the deeper meaning of Fifty Shades of Grey, and a
father’s ultimate sacrifice: accompanying his daughter to a Justin
Bieber concert (“It turns out that the noise teenaged girls make to
express happiness is the same noise they would make if their feet were
being gnawed off by badgers”).
Let’s face it: families not only
enrich our lives every day, they drive us completely around the bend.
Thank goodness we have Dave Barry as our guide!
