Good old Erma Bombeck, right? I get the Erma Bombeck Writer’s Workshop newsletter in my inbox, and I laughed out loud when I read about how she penned her own obituary while on a Grand Canyon trek.
Erma was a hoot. But you know what? I know a lot of women writers who are a hoot. I read their funny stories on their blogs, and sometimes, I laugh out loud at the comments they leave here at my blog.
And I think it’s about time some of you funny ladies shared your wit with Erma (and the blog of the workshop carrying her name). You can send your funny musings to email@example.com.
I might even dust off the wit and send something myself. I mean, I’m a hoot and a half, according to the Beneficent Mr. Hall. (I think it’s supposed to be a compliment, right?)
Oh, make no mistake, you are at the very least a hoot and a half; probably more like a hoot x a gazillion. 🙂
Tell the Beneficient Mr. Hall that you are at minimum, a triple hoot. And that’s from one of your half hoot writer friends!
PS I have a writer friend from Chautauqua who went to the EB workshop/conference. She loved it and said her face hurt from smiling/laughing so much.
I agree with Lisa. Cathy, you’re way more than a hoot and some change. A whole pile of hoots is what you are.
So Gladys better watch out. You might start hooting so much, Gladys might think an owl is treading on her territory. 😉
You are wise and witty, and when it comes to the hoot department, you are a head hooter.
