If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?

If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits? - Erma Bombeck [These notes were made in 1984:]. Standard Bombeck fare: exaggeration and slightly outrageous diction combined with recognizable domestic situations make for a hilarious quick once-through reading. After that it palls. Her quick observation of small human details reminds me slightly of what Gerald Durrell does to animals.
