Ugh. No, thanks.

Looks hideous.

It won't make me cry, because I'd never open it.

On the other hand, opening it probably would, so truth in advertising.

About 10 years ago (give or take), I had a bad day. It was a Friday. In the afternoon, I found out that I'd failed a biochemistry exam (by ONE question!). My mom called about an hour later and told me that my childhood cat died of cancer. Naturally, I decided to go out and make a series of bad decisions in response. Those decisions started, as many do, with alcohol. I drank to a point where I finally had the courage to make a concerted pass at a girl I had a crush on. She rejected me. Later that night, I saw her making out at the bar with a classmate. At some point in the evening, I found myself at the home of one of my junior professors with a group of my classmates. I vomited in his bathroom - missing the toilet by a fair margin. I woke on Saturday morning in on the beach, half-wrapped in a dewy blanket.

And I lost a single sandal... making my 5 mile walk home all that more painful.

Why is any of this relevant?

I would rather repeat that day than read the book you linked to.

Now, *that* made me cry.

Really? I thought vomit was always funny, in the literary sense.

His cat dying got to me.

Why would I want to read a story about a stoopid teenager's stoopid decisions. I lived through my own stoopid teenaged years (although not THAT stoopid). Once was enough.

Is it The Best Book Evah?

Strangers tend to write book reviews; authors and friends of authors tend to get on these forums and promote.

Whichever you might happen to be, there's a basic premise you seem to be missing. When a 2yo says "I want an ice cream", that's not planning. When an immature, damaged 14yo says "I want a baby" that's not planning either. Planning requires intelligent, informed appraisal of the ramifications of the choice.

Or you could write a book about it :-D

I think I'll wait for the movie.

Such a book might interest other teenagers who are thinking that a baby is what they need to make their life better, but I am not such. As such, I have no interest in such. Thanks anyway.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 14, 2014 6:44:46 PM PDT
I've actually thought about doing just that. There were certainly enough shenanigans from those years to fill a few Kindles.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 15, 2014 5:43:21 AM PDT
Better note the title of the book, since the OP's been deleted. For self-promotion, perhaps?

Put me down for a pre-order of "Erich's Shenanigans (or How I Became a Doctor In Spite of Myself)".

I think he went to my high school. That story seemed very familiar.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 15, 2014 6:12:33 AM PDT
Oh! Maybe you could write the foreword?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 15, 2014 10:07:20 AM PDT
""Erich's Shenanigans (or How I Became a Doctor In Spite of Myself)"."

Wow... that title couldn't possibly be more appropriate. Thanks - I may end up having to pay you a royalty. heh.

Not for titles--they can't be copyrighted. (-:

Right. Because only one teenage guy was ever stewed stewpit.

Shhhh! I need the cash! As long as he's being generous, let him. ;-)

You have plenty of witnesses if you want to sue later. I hope he lets us know when we can start the pre-order.
