This collection of essays views life through Jenny Allen's middle-aged lens. Taking on everything from attempting a craft project to escorting an aging father to the doctor to life after divorce, the author shares her humorous, "life will go on" attitude with readers. Ask the Answer Lady helps guide a newly divorced woman through her feelings about the new girlfriend. My Gathas are a riff on meditation verses with modern examples. Take My House Please is an accounting of an old house's aches and pains. The other 32 essays tackle other modern life surprises, woes, and idiosyncrasies in the author's wry, sometimes mocking, voice.
