You’ll see yourself on every page. . . . Read this book on the beach, on a plane, in a bubble bath. Read it out loud at your next family reunion. But just be sure to read it if you need a laugh.”
—Mary McHugh, author of How to Ruin Your Marriage
“What a joy! In this time of little humor Rose Mula’s If These Are Laugh Lines, I’m Having Way Too Much Fun looks at everyday events with a comic eye. It will make you laugh, as you probably have had the same experiences but without her refreshing slant.”

(Laugh Quotient), this book is for you!”
