Do your Laundry or You'll Die Alone
Advice your Mom Would Give If She Thought You Were ListeningBook - 2014
When Becky Blades sent her firstborn daughter off to Harvard, she knew the world's top ranked college would not be covering the most important material: How to be kind, happy and appropriate in public; how to protect oneself from sock monsters, boring conversations and scary dates; why to keep the clothes clean. Just in time for her youngest daughter's graduation from high school, Blades illustrated the prose with her signature mixed media artwork, creating a thought-provoking, conversation-starting book. With warmth, wit, and a hint of motherly sass, the book blends bite-sized morsels of coming-of-age common sense such as "Keep at least one stuffed animal, " and "A bad attitude makes your butt look big, " with tiny essays on topics like forgiveness and phone etiquette. The perfect gift from mother to daughter or from friend to friend, Do Your Laundry Or You'll Die Alone is wise counsel for women of all ages, reminding us to trust our instincts and to show our dreams who's boss.
