And if she were alive I’m not sure whether she would be pissed or flattered. While remembering Phyllis Diller yesterday, she passed away at age 95, I was reminded of an author that I think my writing resembles and that is Erma Bombeck.
I’m not all for creating stories with plots and characters and all that unnecessary stuff. I find that real life provides all the entertainment I need. Beginning in the 1960’s, Erma Bombeck told the true story of what being a wife and mother was like.
I have not read any of her books in some time but its on the short list of things to do as her quotes will be the inspiration of my blog posts for awhile. So here’s to you Mrs. Bombeck, I hope they didn’t bury you too close to the septic tank.
