So, there I was, all comfy in full – all.by.myself.because.everyone.else. was.drenching.themselves.in.Super.Bowl.madness – mode. I was happily reading in said peacefulness, when all of a sudden, I felt an instant flash of heat swell up from deep within. At first I couldn’t tell if it was because I’d reached another poignant moment in Ned’s book, or from an overdue hot flash, or from the jarring fact that my own disheveled mug suddenly appeared out of nowhere onto my laptop screen.
True to his threat, Ned Hickson published my review of his book. For those unfamiliar with this hilarious journalist, author, and part-time volunteer firefighter, I highly recommend his blog, ‘Ned’s Blog’ for a daily shot of hearty smiles and laughs, and of course it goes without saying that at least twice a day, in only merest homage to football, I whip out and flail the biggest golden pom-poms around his book, ‘Humor at the Speed of Life’.
Have a look and a laugh at how he put my review together, and then maybe also consider ordering his book. I guarantee you’ll work up some heat with all the ha ha’s.

Cheers to the Super Bowl winner, whoever you are.
LOL-the hot flash reference caught me off guard. And I enjoyed the review- so much that I went ahead and subscribed to Ned’s blog. Thanks for the recommendation, Robyn!
Ha ha – that’s awesome Diahann. I don’t know how Ned does it, but he comes up with crazy funny perspectives every darn day. If I didn’t enjoy reading his work so much, I could hate him out of sheer humorous envy.
I thought you were brilliant on Ned’s blog, Robyn.
You have no idea how great that is to hear from you! You know how much I have loved and admired your humorous and heart-felt posts.
I’ve always been one of those people who thinks of a better thing to say days after the opportunity. This was one of those rare moments that something came across my screen at just the right time.
Thanks so much!!
Any time my name and the word “hot flash” appear within the same reference, I’m humbled. Thanks, Robyn 😉
