Mary Ann’s second collection of humorous essays are relatable stories and anecdotes, full of dry wit and satire. She tells the story of how, one day in 1957, she was the reason her second grade teacher had a bad day, with 55 kids in her classroom and vomit in aisle 4. She relates her experience of being reprimanded as a student nurse for yelling “Good luck!” to her patient as he was being wheeled down the hall to the OR. Apparently, “good luck” is not the appropriate thing to say when someone’s about to go under the knife. Mary Ann’s senior years continue to give her fodder to write about, like her close call with the law because of a chicken. She does her mediocre best to catch up with technology—barely able to hold her own while Zooming and FaceTiming family and friends during the pandemic.

Mary Ann’s first collection of humorous essays are tongue-in-cheek views of her everyday observations and quirky experiences. The pages are filled with anecdotes about her fear of hummingbirds, the burial of the family cat in a cardboard box decorated with her son's Grateful Dead pencil drawings, and her concern that, because of her unphotogenic smile, she won't have enough decent photos for the obligatory collage at her funeral. Surviving an interstate move after retirement, with all its challenges and four adult children weighing in, gave her much fodder to write about.
