Everyone's favorite Idiot Girl, Laurie Notaro, is just trying to find the right fit, whether it's in the adorable blouse that looks charming on the mannequin but leaves her in a literal bind or in her neighborhood after she's shamefully exposed at a holiday party by delivering a low-quality rendition of ;Jingle Bells. ; Notaro makes misstep after riotous misstep as she tries (and catastrophically fails) to gain some ground-delightfully whipping up butter-laden cupcakes for the local vegan kids, finding herself banned from the post office for wanting too many two-cent stamps ( ;The post-office lady looked at me like I had just asked her if she wanted to buy my sex tape ;), and discovering what appears to be a corpse on her front lawn seconds before her sister is due to visit ( ;I had approximately three to four minutes to move the carcass from my yard into my neighbors' yard so my sister would think it was their dead person ;). She shares tales of marriage and family, including stories about the dog-bark translator that deciphers Notaro's and her husband's own ;woofs ; a little too accurately, the emails from her mother with ;FWD ; in the subject line ( ;which in email code means Forecasting World Destruction ;), and the dead-of-night shopping sprees and Devil Dog ;devouring monkeyshines of a creature known as ;Ambien Laurie. ; At every turn, Notaro's pluck and irresistible candor sets the New York Times bestselling author on a journey that's laugh-out-loud funny and utterly unforgettable.
