Each column is a humorous snapshot of a day in the author's past, written as a journal entry. A particular entry may be from Halloween 1980, yesterday, or the day he was born. By writing a diary in retrospect, Mollen satirizes both past and present, serving up pop culture and nostalgia with a wit that is both sharp and gentle-hearted. Many of the entries present poignant, self-deprecating stories of growing up in the 1970s and '80s as the youngest of six boys in a middle-class, Irish Catholic family. This volume is one of a three-part series, each one a treasury of humor.
