2022-11-18 | 🔗
New York Times bestselling author Peggy Rowe is at it again—this time giving a hilarious inside look at her writing career. She has been writing all her adult life. In fact, she doesn’t know how not to write—even through those years of constant rejection from publishing houses. But between her tenacity and the encouragement of her family, Peggy’s breakthrough finally came at the tender age of 80. Vacuuming in the Nude is most likely her funniest prose to date as she shares her journey of attending myriad writers’ conferences and honing her ability to see humor in everyday situations.

Your end, is weak or you, your plot is thin or it needs to be funnier,
It's hard to imagine my journey without mike listening laughing, and cheering me on, the fact that his very public Career is also the source of endless entertaining material has been the icing. my literary cake, the file waste story is a perfect example. I call it road kill the dirty parents. My husband and I were watching dirty jobs reruns one saturday, when the road kill, cleaner episode came on a set of grimacing as we normally would. We exchanged glances the way people do when they share a naughty sacred. It was, the earliest episodes and like most viewers, John and I were sickened by the sheer volume of carcasses on highways. There was an upside of course, as with most stories on dirty jobs. This happened
oh wreaked of educational opportunity, in fact, my husband had often claim that viewing all three hundred episodes of dirty jobs is the equivalent of a three credit college course as always, our son came away from this job, with an appreciation for the workers who pick up an average one thousand animals, mostly deer, possums and raccoons from ohio roadways in one year. Without this through highways would be impassable, who knew and through it all Sensitivity towards animals remains intact. Michael, a that it's a job requiring the strong back and uneven stronger stomach shortly after the the sole aired, our sons. And ass a gift. Actually, he forwarded a gift to us, that he had received in the mail and no it wasn't it,

First dirty jobs, gift we ve some of them, through the years, the ones and haven't drawn flies or grown mildew or rotted and stung to high Heaven like the little pots made of common? or from a dairy farm in connecticut the little pellets of AL Vomit, wrapped in foil and something from a goat simply cheese or so, of course, it could have been worse. We held up brad. There too. He worked with worms and maggots and work to go to mail box after he castrated sheep. In contrast, we had high hopes, when we saw our son in an open mind, no such luck anyway, His gift arrived in november for identical place, mats, sturdy and well made with a large the grant of one initially appeared to be a roar shock, inkblot
mostly red and color, but, as we dear, that it too is gradually emerged, then I came into focus and a leg. Oh yeah, it was a picture. Road kill all right a rapid and a former life. Perhaps one of the things thousands of animals picked up from the stretch of road where he had spent a day. It was hideous and offensive, of course, and John said something like, I guess, we should be grateful. It's not the real thing I start to placements in the bottom desk drawer, along with my lovely, courier knives prince put them out of my mind. What did our sun expect me to do so? launch on them to my own teacher friends with on tray of rabid catch a tory, perhaps aura tasty bunny kebab, but of course the worst was yet to come. A humorous.
looks at the world around her and sees the humor. It comes naturally the Helen she's in revealing that humour to others in writing and the funny thing bad humor. Is that sometimes in and immediately obvious Sometimes it requires a distance and perspective knowledge of the back story. This is situational humor and its great fun to write about the hairy part. Every december Johns emma, you're, theatrical, group, twenty or so creative funny actors in stage crew, along with spain, This is from all walks of life gathered at the spacious home of one of its members there we celebrated that ears successful, theatrical productions with a cover dish, dinner sparkling conversation the roma basin and a game called yankees, swap it was the so
your highlight of our holiday season, and for some of us tire year the roles of yankee swat were simple. Each person or couple brought a ten dollar present funny. You're gay gifts were encouraged flea market fines weird attic treasures and quirky retro discards were popular wrapped and without name tags. They were pilot the end, The great room where we gathered couples are individuals drew numbers from a basket from one twenty or, however many people were present, the person or or who drew number one chose a gift, unwrapped it and held it up for all to see Then the person who drew number two could pick a new gift or steel. A previously open gift. The person they stole it from could choose a new one and so on.
miracle order one We came home with a hideous bays which we were tempted to drop into the. I'm still at the end of the road, but instead we wrapped in riga. Did it the following year Other time we were the proud recipients of scrawny rubber, stuffed chicken that squawked when it was squeezed. We learn through the years to go small when choosing we're easier to dispose of. Sometimes we got lucky and opened our gift to discover food, such as cheeses or nuts or a box of candy and tried to I did so that someone else wooden steal it when it was their turn, the most Where did number was one since that person, when both first and last and had the pick of all previously opened gifts one year, thanks to MIKE's, roadkill episode,
It occurred to me that the perfect gift lay in our bottom desk drawer. It was unique disgusting and definitely a conversation peace. If ever there was a group with a sense of humor. It was this one so I wrapped the place madsen red tissue paper and place them in a festive gift bag, confident they would be a hit as usual, he was arousing ready and when it was game time John and I were lucky enough to snag the best seats in the house front row sender. Beside our friends, Phillotson Tom one I won the creative actor types chose and revealed their gifts. Often with hilarious award worthy reactions. After Harry opened the box to find a very convincing miniature human skull. He held it high and professed, alas, poor europe
I knew him horatio. The group was half way through the pile and our gift had not yet been claimed, when it was Phillotson Tom's turn tom stood and headed straight for our gift bag. I saw John stiffen, the new scheme, he's my arm discreetly because, as I said, our seats were in full view of everyone. Tom handed the price to his wife and his tore away the red paper. It suddenly hit me as the theme from jaws came to mind from nowhere. This was not going to be pretty to say that Phyllis was an animal lover, would be like saying, kids tolerate ice cream She had a house full of dogs and was active on the show circuit. She belonged the canine clubs and was involved in rescues. was a member of peter in good standing ensured Phyllis.
If revolved around animals, she held a pack of place. Man at arm's length, then, with her glasses on she tilted her head to the side, squinted and rotated the mad. gradually her eyes widened, and there was a pained expression on her face. As though someone had shot a staple into her temple. As I've said, there were approximately anti pairs of eyes on us. We didn't dare look at each other, just our luck the one person in the room who should not receive a picture of a sale, bunny, staring at it as though it were my head on a spike. Personally, I was taught between a desire to laugh hysterically, as a few others were doing. And a concern that our friend appeared to be somewhere between a cardiac event in a fit of apoplexy.
But my primary concern was sitting a mere ten inches away. My huh and who, as you might recall, is a chronic truth. Teller, rather be run over by an eighteen. Wheeler then tell a lie. Hu. I gave him the hairy eyeball warning. Do not and under any circumstances, reveal that we brought this tasteless gift and sure enough. Not only did he get it, his acting skills kicked in full force. The next day I knew he was shaking his head and adopting a tsk tsk expression that matched mine. Oh, this is terrible. I can't look at it. Phyllis said making no attempt to hide her revulsion, giving me a sideways glance. She whispered, what kind of a purse she's jobs the offensive placements toward her husband.
as people laughed and someone hummed here comes peter cottontail, one person even applauded. So my thoughtful and quick thinking, husband, said the only comforting thing he could think of and really it save the day passed them around tom, maybe somebody else will choose them, so Tom did just that and sure enough theatrical types it seems to have a high tolerance for gore and carnage. Nano they did someone steal them from Phyllis. They were stolen at least once again john, always chooses a gift for us and got lucky that year, around camp with four flavors of delicious popcorn. When the game ended with adjourned for dessert, but Phyllis wasn't up to digesting food just as well, As the centre piece was everyone's favorite, a large decorated, multi, layered, carried cake.
On the way home John asked. Did you notice we ended up with a placement to reach. I responded no, but next year be sure. to choose something, really small. When it's your turn that fifteen years ago, and we have never I'm clean or been added to this day No one knows our little secret that we were the gift of tasteless carnage, from time to time when we are in the company of old friends from the play, grew more in the non at a funeral or memorial service. Phyllis will recall the infamous place and it's always with a shudder of revulsion. I realize, were blowing our cover now and possibly emma our reputations forever. But really, how likely is Phyllis to read the story. Titled road kill. Family, remains an endless source of material for this writer. I was in
