Before getting to the most recent review of my book, I have been instructed by my lawyer to issue the following disclaimer:
Warning: Humor at the Speed of Life should not be considered a substitute for a certified life coach, or used as guide in making major life decisions, or even deciding on what to have for dinner. Should you decide to use it for this purpose by randomly picking passages in a fashion similar to a Magic 8-Ball, results may vary, particularly if you happen to choose anything from the section Women are from Venus and Men Won’t Ask for Directions.
That said, I’d like to thank Robyn L. from Blog Woman!!! for this insightful review that has made my lawyer more nervous than Justin Bieber getting dropped off in Compton…
I just received my copy of Ned Hickson’s book, Humor at the Speed of Life. Interestingly, its arrival coincided with my receiving a blog post that offered corresponding wisdom for the ages.
Allow me to point out the simpatico quote as guided by fate, and page 45:
Private areas will be covered by a strategically positioned prop, such as an AARP card.”
Thus I can now honestly say that this book has already provided deep insight into my being-ness in finally defining my love life. I guess I can also feel great relief and even gratitude that this knowledge notes that I can expect a certain satisfaction well into my advanced years.
The read so far has been another fun trip into Ned’s finely humorous take on daily survival. I can only expect that the rest of this book will also reveal the answers to the other mysteries of my existence, and perhaps even enlighten me of my one true purpose.
Enlightenment comes from within the shadows.
With highest regards,
Robyn L. AKA Blog Woman!!!

One of y’all owes me a Diet Pepsi. And possibly a new computer keyboard. That’ll teach me to read while drinking…
Yep, he really should have a ‘Spew Warning’ and perhaps an LLC, ‘just in case’. His attorney is slipping, or perhaps he welcomes the ‘business’? 😉
Note to Ned. LLC does not stand for Laughing Like Crazy

No charge — just cuz you’re awesome. 😛
Shucks, Victoria — thank you 😉
I agree with you, Victoria. The Spew Clause was completely missed and I’m still bitter over some lost tequila several weeks ago.
Lost tequila? Hey — you are offering me nectar from your shed, and I find that you’ve been drinking tequila? You’ve got some splaining to do. 😀
Pleading the 5th dear friend!
You are SO American. 😉
I’m actually holding a Throwback Pepsi at this moment.
It’s not diet, but I think I can make it from here if you’re up for it… 😉
Hell, that’s at least as good as Dr. Phil. (Note to Dr. Phil’s lawyer: Sue Ned, not me; it’s on his blog.)
Sorry, Mikels, but I believe it’s called being an accessory. Please try not to clash with my shoes…
Smilng, kinda shyly over here…. thanks Ned. You’re the best celebrity your only groupie ever had.
Not sure how much of a celebrity I am, but if it means you’re my groupie then okay.
Many thanks, Robyn 😉
Well now, Ned, I didn’t realize you had a book out too! Congratulations! I’ll have to investigate. One quick observation – what if Robyn’s interpretation of that “meaning of life” pg 45 quote is actually slightly different? For instance she is left completely naked except for her AARP card hanging on an especially long lanyard around her neck (“Private areas will be covered by a strategically positioned prop…”) Of, course, that too could be indicative of a very healthy love life – albeit somewhat kinky…
That’s a very astute observation. And possibly a little too descriptive to be complete guesswork…
Funny, Robyn’s HATSOL reading method resembles the way a lot of people read the Bible, except I always open right to ‘Jesus wept’ for some reason….
That’s page 46 in my book.
Ned – sent you an email, need a yes. thx.
Oops – sorry for butting in on this chat, and I forgot to type in -please- with my request. My muulti-tasking skillz are fizzling for the day.
No worries, Robyn 😉
and shadows come when you don’t have your glasses on.
Robyn knows her stuff…
No offense, but I wouldn’t want to trade places with your lawyer;)
Haha! None taken! But I think my lawyer was really hoping… 😦
