Belle Weather: Mostly Sunny with a Chance of Scattered Hissy Fits

Typical Celia Rivenbark — which is to say hilarious, rip-roaring, definitely the Southern belle’s often-skewed point of view. She touches on car wrecks and lawyers, Britney Spears (as a decidedly Southern hot mess), birthday parties for young (consumer) girls, food, and husbands. The quote about palmetto bugs, alone, is worth the full price of the book. Required reading for all those wishing to laugh their asses off.

(On cockroaches: “Occasionally, we call them ‘palmetto bugs,’ which sounds downright charming, as if they march about with palm fronds for hair and carry tiny little glasses of sweet tea on a tray.”)
