Have you ever wondered why a thrown flat rock never flies straight? Spent a long and sleepless night in a den of snorers? Did you ever blow up cuisine in the microwave and then try and hide it?
Follow the author and his family and friends in their rollicking adventures as they test the science of throwing flat rocks, battle snorers through long sleepless nights, and turn microwave tapioca pudding into pudding grenade shrapnel. Join the foreign exchange student, Diego, as he takes on the dreaded Sleddin’ Road and ride into the sunset with the author in a Volkswagen Rabbit that smokes more than a steam locomotive. Finally, just try not to laugh as you read about the cutthroat cookie decorating contest from Christmas 2007 or as the author guinea pigs his younger brother in a game of spit wads.
Born in Idaho, raised on ice cream, and schooled in calamity and disaster, author James D. Beers writes the stories of his life from a unique, humorous, and slightly exaggerated perspective in A Knack for Embarrassment, his first collection of short stories.
