If you live in the Northeast like I do, it's always a challenge to avoid the doldrums of not enough sun and too much snow. Truth be told, it's been a difficult winter for many in this country. Enough is enough! It's time to embrace spring and the joy within our souls. Let's face it, there's nothing like good humor to leave our troubles behind!
Winter or not, life is filled with challenges that can take us from our joy. God knows, I've had my share just as we all do from time to time and to greater and lesser extents. The good news is that I've found a way to make lemonade out of lemons. I've done this by embracing the humor that has always helped me cope with what have seemed to be bad times. I'm also very good at it.
Here's my gift to you. I've created a series of outlandishly funny tales about a naughty nun who loves her bourbon and her Marlboros. She's both a renegade and a character that knows how to tell stories that will lighten your load. Let's face it, there's nothing like a good laugh to chase away the blues. Sister Mary Olga will deliver you one belly laugh after another.
You can start out by reading The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude. The good news is that the laughs won't stop there. I've created an entire series of books about this wayward nun and the zany characters who reside on Dinkledorf Drive in the fictional town of Bucksnort, Wisconsin.
In between puffs on her cigarettes which she calls prayer sticks, Sister Mary Olga will tell you about her ongoing conflicts with Reverend Mother Carmen Burana who just happens to be a former hooker. She'll also tell you tales about her challenging charges in Beginner's and Advanced Holiness. Just don't take a seat next to the flatulent child named Fartley Dinkledorf or you may go up in fumes.
One good antagonist deserves another. There's nothing like conflict to create mayhem! I've done this in such a way that you'll see how the crazy egos of people who think they know better than everyone else will stir up pots of trouble that pave the way to hilarity.
Take the prudish town gossip, Priscilla Bunhead, for example. She wears her hair in such a tight little bun that she can't possibly have an open mind. She's constantly prying into other people's business. As she does so, she creates havoc with neighbors like the irascible Martha Mayhem and the haughty Lula Mae Bunsaplenty.
Priscilla takes pot shots at people who are different than her. No one is safe or sacred from her antics. She goes after Catholics, gay people, and African-Americans. She doesn't have a clue about sex. Truth be told, she's undoubtedly jealous. Consequently, she loves to cast her judgments against people who enjoy their sensuality. She has plenty of fodder with which to do so because there's a lot of hanky panky going on in the Snortlands of Wisconsin!
Whether you're feeling down and out or just want to coast with your ongoing joy, take a walk on the wild side and pick up a book that's guaranteed to provide you with non-stop laughs. Just be sure to keep an open mind. There are already enough Priscilla Bunheads in this world!
