Sylvia loves to poke fun at herself and leaves no stone unturned when it comes to sharing her many human foibles and frailties.
In this collection of humorous essays she covers such topics as her love/hate relationship with jigsaw puzzles, her phobias of mice and dentists and her joy at finally losing her virginity (her snorkeling virginity, that is).
She also tackles such diverse subjects as flying in a hot-air balloon, searching for a lost piece of jewelry and playing a ukulele onboard a cruise ship.
Sylvia regularly entertains readers via her popular blog “Write The Words, Share The Stories”, and the essays in this collection include some of her readers’ favorite posts.
Discover what the author’s blog followers already know– this writer finds humor in everyday situations and shares her unique perspective on the world in a lighthearted “I can’t believe I just did that!” tone that readers everywhere will enjoy.
Note: A slightly different version of this eBook was originally published under the title Confessions From My Blog.
