3. book that makes you laugh out loud
Once upon a time, I wished my Dad was Bill Cosby.
(Sorry, Dad. For what it's worth, I think you are at least as cool as Bill Cosby. And definitely better-looking.)
Then, I realized my father is Bill Cosby.
(At some point, we should talk about that whole sweater-vest thing.)
Several years after that, my boyfriend (who does a fairly decent Bill Cosby impression, although thankfully sans sweater vests) introduced me to a book written by Mr. Cosby, called "Cosbyology: Essays and Observations from the Doctor of Comedy."
In what was, for him, a remarkably poor judgement call, he decided to read to me from this book while we were driving home from school one day. Well, I was driving. But pretty soon I was laughing, so hard my face hurt, so hard, in fact, that I was gasping and crying actual tears and could not see at all and very nearly killed us.
It's a really good book. You should read it. But probably not while driving.
