Did your mom just add you on Facebook? Did you fart in yoga class? Don’t fret, you can find solutions to these cringe-worthy problems and more in the hilarious new book OMG! How to Survive 101 of Life’s Most F’ed Situations.
Author Deborah Baer offers up laugh out loud ways to cope with some rather irksome situations, such as: A friend who keeps stealing your style? Wear mom-jeans and legwarmers! A boyfriend with a wandering eye? Squirt him with water! “Like Pavlov’s dogs soon he will be conditioned properly and will never take his eyes off you again,” writes Baer, a Brooklyn-based entertainment journalist who has interviewed many-a-celeb, from Angelina to Li-Lo.
OMG! is also chock-full of amusing pop-culture trivia (Stars Strange Workout Tunes: Stevie Wonder, really Jennifer Aniston?) and truly random statistics, such as, “In Ancient Rome people used urine to whiten their teeth,” that may actually come in handy when talking your way out of some of life’s stickiest situations. A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, bring it with you to liven up a neighborhood potluck or break the ice on a blind date, and soon you’ll have everyone saying, “OMG!”
OMG! How to Survive 101 of Life’s Most F’ed Situations is available now on amazon.com.
