Pat the Husband: A giveaway!

This book was one of my funniest 2008 finds. I first reviewed it on my main blog, Hormone-colored Days and now I'm giving away my very gently-used copy.

Pat the Husband: A Parody is a hilarious 16-page riff on the lovable children's book, Pat the Bunny. Only it's funnier. And for adults. Or young children who won't get the adult subtext.

Readers help Husband find the remote, discover where the ketchup bottle is hidden, and meet other daunting challenges. It's a hoot! It's a fun girlfriend gift and will make you the hit of any Check Spellingmoms group.

There is one glaring omission in the book- there's no little activity to help Husband change the toilet paper, a task my DH is unable to master!

RULES To enter, leave a comment below letting me know what little task your husband falls short on. Entries from US residents will be accepted through noon on 12/16. Blog or Tweet this post for an extra entry each (come back and comment to let me know you did so). You can also gain an extra entry by subscribing to my main blog.

Good luck!
(Disclaimer: My husband is totally helpful other than the toilet paper thing.)

He can take out the trash, but he can never put a new trash bag in the can.
How hard is that?

Jordan said...

He leaves his pajamas and socks on the bathroom floor EVERY single morning. (but I don't have much more on the guy!)

Jodifur and I are sharing the same husband. And we love how he starts a load of laundry late at night so the wet clothes sit all night.

Clanging his spoon against the bowl when he eats cereal! It drives me nuts!

My hubby falls short in putting things away after they are taken out. *sigh* A never ending battle!

Thanks for the opportunity. This book is an ongoing joke with the two of us.

My husband cannot open or close anything properly. Boxes, Ziplocs, SnapWare, he's so consistent that at this point it's impressive.

Keeping in touch with his own family. Like I'm supposed to call his siblings and his mom for him!

Kari said...

Jodifur, Cindy Fey, our men are much the same. Can't complain much though. At least the garbage gets taken out :)

Dishwasher full? Why empty it was you can just keep on piling dishes up the sink? I hate when I finally empty it and the dirty dishes completely fill it up again.

Looks like a cute book.

Husband cannot figure out how to wash a dish or start a vacuum

What little task does my husband fall short on: Never, ever picks up after himself or puts stuff away. Grrr.

He cannot find anything to save his life. His mantra: "Honey, where's the......?". Arrgh!
