When I first learned that I was pregnant, I thought this
was going to be the most blessed, beautiful,
rose-petals-at-my-feet-and-bluebirds-lighting-upon-my-forearm time of my life.
Then I went for my first prenatal visit.
Which starts with a weigh-in.
From comedian Anita Renfroe, already beloved by women’s
groups and YouTube viewers across America, comes this hilarious and brazenly
honest look at motherhood and middle age. Famous for her live performance of
the “Mom Song,” which barrels through everything a mom says to her kids in a
single day to the tune of the “William Tell Overture” (just two minutes and
fifty-five seconds), in Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You, Renfroe now turns
her irreverent and daringly accurate comic eye to other female conditions.
In chapters with names like “Brother, Can You Spare an
Epidural?” and “Playing Favorites (Or, As a Matter of Fact, I Do Love Your
Brother More),” she dares to speak what other women are thinking—but don’t say
out loud. Using wit and honesty as her weapons of choice, Renfroe shares her
deeply funny and relatable takes on everything from weddings to mammograms to
every woman’s never-ending quest for just one good photo of herself.
The world is a bounty of material for Renfroe; with it, she
makes a feast of laughter for us all. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Download and start listening now!
