An amazing reader email

Check this out! I got this awesome email from happy “Milk Eggs Vodka” reader named Bree:

Greetings!

While I sit here on October 1st, anxiously awaiting the free book alert that always alludes me, I thought I’d send you a note.

I’ve been reading your site for quite some time. It’s rather funny, of course, and it has taught me to reevaluate my odd grocery lists in the off-chance someone might encounter it and send it in for all the public to see and mock/reenact my purchases. And while it appears on nearly every list I write, I don’t think “food” is descriptive enough for people to stalk my buying habits.

On to my point… my sister’s birthday was quickly approaching this past July, and being the good younger sister that I am, I purchased her an assortment of presents: a t-shirt, lamp and a book—your book.

Upon my birthday visit to her, she also had an assortment of belated presents for me—though her collection of gifts put mine to shame, save for one item. Milk Eggs Vodka! We bought each other the same book! You can only imagine my delight and excitement to know that she had already experienced this book and that she wanted to share it with me. And honestly, I was jealous of having to part with the book that I had purchased for her. But in the end, we both won.

Milk Eggs Vodka for everyone!

Thanks for the quirky book. I look forward to sharing it with others, too.

PS: The best way to find out about the free book alert before everyone else is to sign up for my monthly email newsletter. Huzzah!

“I was brought to tears”

I just got an awesome email from a happy “Milk Eggs Vodka” reader. Made my day!

I just bought and read your book Milk Eggs Vodka. Reading this book was like sitting with an old friend. I laughed so hard many times that I was brought to tears and made the “ugly” face. Your comments under each grocery list were hilariously on target. I’m totally in love with your sense of humor. I look forward to scouring the book stores for more of your work. Thank you for making my week.
—Teresa

No, thank you, Teresa — you’ve made my week too!

“Incredibly satisfying to one’s curiosity”

More grocerylists.org reader mail!

I don’t know how I found your website but I’m glad I did…I got some wonderful, solitary laughs out of some of these (not to mention that reading them is incredibly satisfying to one’s curiosity!) I will be on the lookout for shopping lists and will try to send them your way, though I doubt I will find ones as funny as some I saw here on your website! I will tell my friends about this fun spot of humor on the internet!

“I never realized until now how funny people can be — and they don’t even know it!”

Here’s some recent reader mail from grocerylists.org:

Just want to say that I laughed very hard and out loud (and at work)while I read your incredible collection of grocery lists! (LOVED the mizpeld ones the most!) Besides the lists themselves, your comments from the top 10 lists were hysterical!! Having worked in a Supermarket for 15 years — I never realized until now how funny people can be — and they don’t even know it!

Keep searchin’
I’ll keep laughin’

Thanks

“Made me laugh out loud”

Another kind note:

I just read the little short story from grocery lists you made to promote your book. It made me laugh out loud — made my day. I’ll be ordering to send to friends. It’s just the kind of humor they will enjoy, and I can’t wait to see.
—Sandy

Thanks, Sandy!

“Fabulous! Laugh out loud funny!”

I get a lot of email from visitors to grocerylists.org, but this was the first real feedback I got from someone who read my book. It just arrived in my inbox two days ago and I’m reprinting it here (anonymously):

Got a copy of your book Friday afternoon. Didn’t put it down until I’d read it cover to cover.

Fabulous! Laugh out loud funny!

Great job turning trash into treasure!
