A couple of stray comments:
1) During the summers when I was in college, I managed an amusement park on the old Steeplechase site in Coney Island. During those two months each year I ate Nathan's hot dogs (with mustard) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While it's now years between opportunities to eat one, I'm hard pressed to come up with anything I'd rather have than a Nathan's hot dog at Coney Island. (The ones at the franchise Nathan's are horrible.) The lack of availability is a good thing, however, since my digestive system can only handle them once or twice a decade these days.
2) I've got the answer for nose hair! You know that MicroTouch trimmer that's always advertised on TV for $14.99? The one that looks like a fountain pen and is touted as the way to keep your hair (head and body) trimmed? Well, I bought one and it works amazingly well (and painlessly) in cutting nose hair, as well as trimming eyebrows using the attachment included. I suspect it would also be effective in trimming ear hair, though that's the one affliction that hasn't hit me yet.
3) With hot dogs and seltzer listed as blessings, what happened to "knishes"?
One has helped me more than others. He is one of the most
successful freelance writers alive. He has helped me, and
numerous others, without ever expecting any return. I just
learned that this same man went through a stroke, at the
age of 44. Fortunately, he's recovered, and he's written a
wonderful book about gratitude. I'm talking about Bob Bly.
His new book inspired and delighted me while making
me feel glad for the little things in my life. Please read it.
Share it with others. Give it as gifts to strangers on the street. This is a rare, wonderful, uplifting book. -- Joe Vitale, author "Spiritual Marketing"
I like how the tone is always intimate and honest, but sometimes serious and other times lighthearted. I also like how you sneak in facts to back up your statements.
Here are my favorites so far: the essay about your stroke, and the essay about freedom and the fish bowl. I especially like the structure of the fishbowl one since you directly deliver the "punchline" at the end AFTER you already made the point indirectly clear in the fish's description. (That device is also one of my favorite short story tricks.)
Thanks for the book, Bob!
