An aside to Ms. Lamb: I think Ms. Chickie deserves a book of her own. The backstory explaining the dichotomy of a person who raised such a "saddity" daughter, yet shares her porn selections, with accompanying reviews, with that same daughter's daughter is just begging to be done. She's a great character, and I'd like to know more about her. Please consider.
Miss Chickie's church moment was pure genius. She handled that pastor with a truth many of us wish we had the courage to execute -- in many a situation. I look forward to experiencing many more Ms. Chickie "truths".
I highly recommend "Kettle". It is funny, outrageous and just simply good reading.
