(Humor)
Mary Ann Hoyt is back, with her second collection of humorous essays. Her relatable stories and anecdotes are full of dry wit and satire, with a sprinkling of poignant moments that will have you smiling, laughing, or maybe even shedding a tear.
She tells the story of how, one day in 1957, she was the reason her second grade teacher had a bad day, with 55 kids in her classroom and vomit in aisle 4. She relates her experience of being reprimanded as a student nurse for yelling "Good luck!" to her patient as he was being wheeled down the hall to the OR. Apparently, "good luck" is not the appropriate thing to say when someone's about to go under the knife.
Mary Ann's senior years continue to give her fodder to write about, like her close call with the law because of a chicken. She does her mediocre best to catch up with technology—barely able to hold her own while Zooming and FaceTiming family and friends.
Mary Ann finds something to smile about in almost any situation, including the pandemic. She wants her readers to know that humor is a wonderful God-given coping mechanism worth nurturing. If you liked her first book: In Heaven There's No Money, No Stuff—and No Porta-Potties, you will enjoy this one, too.
Mary Ann Hoyt grew up in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. After raising four children in New Jersey, she and her husband, Paul, moved to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Mary Ann, retired from hospital nursing, now lives with her husband in southern Delaware, 20 minutes from the ocean and closer to their 10 grandchildren. Having been published in nursing magazines years ago, she now devotes her time to writing humor. This is Mary Ann's second book. She's had essays published in the magazine, Delaware Beach Life, and belongs to the Rehoboth Beach Writers Guild.
