BIG Announcement: You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth!

When I am nervous, I morph into SNL's Mary Katherine Gallagher. "Sometimes, when I'm nervous, I put my fingers in my armpits and then I sniff them...like this!"
That is how I felt at 3am...and 4am...and 5am. I was squished between my husband, a child, a dog and my freakout. A good freakout but a freakout, nonetheless. 
Today is the launch of a new anthology, You Have Lipstick On Your Teeth. I cannot describe it better than the back cover of the book:
"Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms!
That’s always been the concept behind our website InThePowderRoom.com where we’ve been entertaining women with our humor and bold, brave honesty since 2009. Now we’re taking it to the next level with an anthology of original short stories from some of the wittiest women writers we know—stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies’ room. Inside you’ll find 39 (mostly) true tales by women, for women, about being women—bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more—written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart.
But be forewarned: we’re holding nothing back. We’re revealing our deep dark secrets—because it’s through our most vulnerable and honest moments that we forge the strongest connections and discover we aren’t so alone after all. 
You have a gimpy boob? Me too. You think glitter is the herpes of the craft world? Me too! You got your fishnet-clad leg stuck to your head on stage in front of thousands of people? Wait…what? OMG. Tell me everything! 
We are your friends, sisters, mothers, and daughters. Regardless of what life has dished up for you, chances are, we’ve been there and we can relate. We’ll help you laugh it off, or hold your hand until you’re ready to laugh again. 
And we promise: we’ll always tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth."

The author's page put me into full pit sniff mode. My name is there, between women that I adore and admire. These women make me snort laugh. My cup runneth over. Click here to see all of the contributors.

I'll just be here...sniffing my pits.

  1. Girl, SHUT THE FRONT DOOR. Your story made me cackle like a hyena. And your photo on the author page brings me endless joy. Would it be super creepy if I frame it? Congrats on being included in another (hopefully) best-selling anthology, funny lady! Big love.
