Not Ready For Granny Panties--The 11 Commandments for Avoiding Granny Panties
“Granny Panties are big bolts of fabric soaked in fear.”
--Mary Fran Bontempo
You get up in the morning, go into the bathroom and look in the mirror. Then it happens. A jolt of terror courses through your veins. Because staring back at you is that worn-out old hag who shows up, every morning, like clockwork. She looks familiar, but you don’t quite recognize her, until it hits you with such force that your knees buckle and you think you’re going to throw up. You are staring at a cranky, worn-out woman who is stuck in a giant pair of GRANNY PANTIES. A woman who looks like fun has become a four-letter word. A woman who looks like your grandmother (Gasp! Choke!) and happens to be you.
Yes, the march of time is inevitable, but the conclusion of time’s forward march—that you will end up feeling beat, bored, miserable and trapped in Granny Panties—is not. The new book, Not Ready For Granny Panties—The 10 11 Commandments for Avoiding Granny Panties, introduces the reader to eleven commandments to help middle aged women reclaim their lives, their vitality and their FUN. With commandments such as “Thou Shalt ‘Fuhgeddaboudit,’” “Thou Shalt Scare Thyself,” and “Thou Shalt Not Wear Elastic Waist Pants,” readers embark on a hilarious ride that also provides sound advice for living life in the middle years to the fullest. Delightful cartoons by illustrator, Pat Achilles, at the beginning of each chapter and helpful, entertaining exercises make this a book that is equal parts fun and inspiration. In fact, Not Ready For Granny Panties is not just a book, it’s a way of life! (Peek inside the book at Amazon.com.)
