I AIN’T DOIN’ IT

Unfiltered Thoughts from A Sarcastic Southern Sweetheart

I hadn’t heard of Heather Land until I was offered a copy of her book. So, I started following her on social media. The short videos that she posts on Instagram and Facebook using the wide-mouthed filter made me laugh every time. Land verbalized the thoughts I was having about whatever particular dilemma or issue that I was frustrated or annoyed with…usually to do with parenting or running into people out in the world. At the end of every post, she says, “I ain’t doin’ it.”

After following Heather Land on social media for a few months, I was anxious to check out her book. Going through a divorce made her stop and reflect a bit on life. In her book, she offers life lessons with wit and a whole lot of sarcasm. All the way through the book, she backs up her sarcasm with her strong faith in God. It isn’t overwhelming, she just shares her faith and trust in God as part of her journey.

I laughed a lot during her chapter on the people of Walmart. It’s a guarantee I will see someone in pajama pants no matter what time of day I go. Her story on the checkout clerk commenting on every item she bought is why I love self-checkout!

Her chapter on social media was pretty spot on. She talks about chain mails, where if you share this post with ten of your friends, your prayers will be answered. You know we all hate those! Then she brings up over-posting and vaguebooking. You know those people who write things like “worst day ever but I can’t talk about it” but then everyone asks what’s wrong and they end up talking about it anyway. I could relate to her frustrations.

Her book doesn’t offer anything earth-shattering, but she does share a few light-bulb moments and lots of witty banter about the odd things we come across in life. Many of these things have happened during her travels for her comedy tour.

If you are fans of realistic comedy or are looking for a light, funny read, this book would fit the bill.

    I didn’t know she had a book, but I sure enjoy her clips on facebook and keep watching her tour schedule in hopes of catching her some day.
