Finding the humor in everyday living, author Valerie Crowe presents a collection of essays that takes a look at the world from her point of view.
From the problems a grandmother faces babysitting the grandchildren, to the trauma of attempting to fold a fitted sheet, to the issues of aging, Oh, Sheet! explores a range of topics as experienced by Crowe, a woman who has sailed through the sea of life and weathered a few storms.
Offering sly insights in an intimate, conversational style, Crowe gives an entertianing and unique perspective on an array of subjects familiar to many.
I know that it cannot just be me! I am totally convinced that my recent “Houdini” exploits in trying to fold a fitted sheet qualify as one of the most common complaints experienced by anyone who has to do a weekly load of laundry that involves bed linens.
I have watched countless YouTube videos on the art of folding these seemingly innocent objects, but as soon as I’m confronted with the wretched things, the nightmare starts again. I’ve tried laying them out on the bed and stretching out the corners, but as soon as I think I have one side under control, the other side curls up into a ball, and it’s back to square one.
