Hi, everyone! I’m so excited you invited me to join your book club!

I mean, I asked to join, and everybody said, “Okay, I guess.” Except for Celia who was having some kind of fit because I saw her violently shaking her head out of the corner of my eye. I hope she’s on medication for that.

And I brought snacks! Everybody likes little boxes of raisins!

Not to brag, but I’m not just a reader — I’m a writer, too! My work has appeared in a bunch of places, like The Funny Times and The Christian Science Monitor.

Okay, well, they’re both really famous publications and the fact that you’ve never heard of them is making me doubt your literacy just the teensiest bit.

I’m in the same place as re-prints of Dave Barry and Andy Borowitz columns!

Nothing? Really? Dave Barry, one of America’s preeminent humor writers.

Oh, “He’s old, right?” Yes, Ashley, Dave Barry is fucking old. He’s famous for living in Miami and writing about his colon. We should all aspire to be Dave Barry.
