The humor in these stories is an absolute gift, an antidote for stressful moods and overly serious outlooks. Truth is, this writer takes humor very seriously and has fun doing so. Her unique take on the ordinary, as well as the unusual, is entertaining and inspiring!

Really enjoyed Rosie's collection of fun stories from
Her column.

My favorite was her story of a very scary dentist
Visit to get a root canal and how she blended in
The lyrics from some of Simon and Garfunkel's songs
That where playing during the root canal .

Lots of fun!!!

Rosie Sorenson is our present-day Dorothy Parker ("Vanity Fair," "The New Yorker"), a brilliant satirist, wit, with a sharp eye for human foibles, including her own. "Humor Me" is a collection of 38 short columns from the dozens she has published, short and tasty, eat one, and like chocolates, you have to eat the next one, the next one...
Eat them in a safe locale where your whooping guffaws don't bring the cops down on you!
Amidst her daring comedy is a kind, sensitive soul, but fortunately it doesn't repress her gut-rattling humor.

Rosie has a way of getting to the heart of everyday situations with piercing wit. She has a delightful sense of the absurd. Her political and cultural observations are funny and refreshing. Five Stars!
