"You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth" and Other Things You'll Only Hear from Your Friends In The Powder Room (Paperback)
Thank God for girlfriends and shared visits to powder rooms That's always been the concept behind our website InThePowderRoom.com where we've been entertaining women with our humor and bold, brave honesty since 2009. Now we're taking it to the next level with an anthology of original short stories from some of the wittiest women writers we know-stories they would only tell their closest friends, most likely from within the haven of a ladies' room. Inside you'll find 39 (mostly) true tales by women, for women, about being women-bodily changes, relationships, careers, motherhood, aging, illness, and more-written with the humor and grit that proudly sets In The Powder Room apart. But be forewarned: we're holding nothing back. We're revealing our deep dark secrets-because it's through our most vulnerable and honest moments that we forge the strongest connections and discover we aren't so alone after all. You have a gimpy boob? Me too. You think glitter is the herpes of the craft world? Me too You got your fishnet-clad leg stuck to your head on stage in front of thousands of people? Wait...what? OMG. Tell me everything We are your friends, sisters, mothers, and daughters. Regardless of what life has dished up for you, chances are, we've been there and we can relate. We'll help you laugh it off, or hold your hand until you're ready to laugh again. And we promise: we'll always tell you when you have lipstick on your teeth.
