Dear 25 year old

I read Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh.

From the back cover…
This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative--like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it--but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:

Stories about things that happened to me
Stories about things that happened to other people because of me
Eight billion dollars*
Stories about dogs
The secret to eternal happiness*

*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

This is an awesomely hilarious book! 

Here's Allie reading the first story in the book at Google...

I adore The Simple Dog and The Helper Dog, and wanting a banana but changing your mind.

I just love laughing until I cry, and Allie helps me do that…
