Life works best when we remember to use things and love people. It never works well the other way around. Marjorie Bottorff's humorous ideology works as a spiritual vitamin. Her book contains thirty-three stories filled with pearls of wisdom gathered from Marjorie's own experience of turning her 'irritants' into something lovely, just as an oyster makes a pearl. Read as Marjorie shares with you how to stop worrying about what others think of you, the truth about hair-color kits, why you don't get to make all of the rules, and even an interview with Noah. If you like Erma Bombeck, you will love Marjorie's related wit in A String of Pearls.
