Seeing life through the lens of this mother-daughter team is hilarious, touching, and real. This collection of stories is totally relatable, they invite us into their imperfect lives and allow us to join in the comedic side of life.
No subject is off limits, from a do it yourself colonoscopy, to peeling a hard-boiled egg and giving up a pool chair to a pool bully.
Lisa points out the incongruities of growing older and the way in which we cope with emerging technologies (Live Feeds), news stories on Facebook (it's all true especially the snake coming out of the toilet), a favorite uncle Mikey who brings Christmas presents that fell off of the back of a truck and the power of steroids to heal a sore throat while providing the energy to accomplish everything needed for Christmas.
Francesca navigates us through her dating world, planning her birthday, and knowing when it is over as evidenced by a ravaged birthday cake. Her empathy and love for her pets shine through in her advocacy for air conditioning and a dog stroller for Ruby, "Francesca Serritella, Attorney at Paw."
The stories are a must read for this summer, this writing duo has an endless supply of everyday occurrences for us to laugh with them and at ourselves.
