Product description

About the Author

Kelly Coleman Potter is the author of "Off-Kelter," a weekly humor column that ran in print for ten years. Potter began writing at a very young age - about as soon as she could hold a pencil and form words. She's a professional kid wrangler, having successfully raised two sons into adulthood who are both members of the world's greatest Navy. Her hobbies used to include ranting, "You kids are going to drive me to drinking," and collecting loose change in parking lots and couch cushions for her lobotomy fund. Now, they include writing, bragging about her handsome sailor sons, and hanging out with her four dogs. Potter is married to her husband of twenty-three years and resides somewhere in the cornfields of Indiana. She still never passes up a nickel laying on the ground because the lobotomy is never totally out of the question.

5.0 out of 5 stars need a laugh? try this book! 24 July 2016
By Josey Jacques - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a semi-memoir, a collection of humorous essays from Kellly's life, spanning from her childhood to her married-with-children life. I was going to give this book 4 stars instead of 5, because Kelly needs to do a better job of proofreading/editing. However, the chapter, “You Always Cook The Ones You Love” had me laughing the whole way through. Then I read it out loud to DH (b/c we experience the same issue). We both ended up laughing so hard we couldn’t breathe at times, and I shed tears. How can I not give an author five stars, who gives two too-serious people the best laugh they’ve had in the last couple of months (at least)?

That was the only essay I found THAT funny, but the others have their moments.

Recommend it, esp. to 40-somethings born in the ‘70s who have raised kids. We can relate to a lot of it. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars laugh out loud while crying happy tears funny. 3 Sept. 2014
By @BY_ChickenLady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have not enjoyed a book this much in a very long time. I feel like I'm having flashbacks to my youth as the author and I share many embarrassing life events in common.

There were so many times while reading this book that my husband asked me what was so funny....I just pointed to my kindle...because I couldn't speak from laughing so much. I was a little sad when I came to the last page...I've had such a wonderful time reminiscing with an old friend...at least that's what it felt like for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and self-reflective 18 April 2016
By EQIzna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed this book. The title got me right away as I first had glasses at age 7 in the late 80s and was tortured until I was allowed to get contacts in the mid-90s. I felt like each short story was either about my life, or will be my life in a few years.
I first had to get glasses the summer after second grade. They weren’t “cool” in the 80s and you didn’t have many frame options. I often wonder why my mother let me wear those things. They were serious coke-bottle type glasses. I was tortured for the better part of my adolescence and finally convinced my parents to get me contacts in the mid-90s. I had similar trials and errors with both of these and I can still remember the kids who made fun of me during those years. But the best part is when you see one of them working in a Subway sandwich shop and they try to ask you out years later. Hah! Nice try, dude.
With a name like Carrie, “Scary Carrie” and “Hairy Carrie” were plentiful. My younger brother was (and still is) spoiled beyond comprehension. I also wanted a sit ‘n’ spin, and did use my brothers when he was young. I’ve always been on the larger end of the spectrum (finally stopped growing at 5’10”) and had a rough time fitting much less spinning on that thing. I finally gave up and it still makes me sad. A friend of mine and I tried to wax our legs when we were teenagers; it ended badly. I could go on and on about similarities.
If you’ve ever been picked on as a kid (it wasn’t “bullying” back then and it made you tough) or found a random bruise that you have no clue where it came from or grew up in the 70s or 80s, I can assure you, you will love these short stories. I often found myself laughing out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars I had four eyes too, still do, and they come in handy for reading this awesome book. 15 April 2016
By Krista Muse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First of all, the picture on the cover of the book looks like a doppleganger of me when I was a kiddo. My mom found this treasure on my shelf and has fallen in love with this book and keeps stating, "Hey Kris, this looks JUST like you when you were little." She has now proceeded to pull out every musty old photograph album from 1977 to find a picture to match up to yours. So I guess if my mom found me cute, you are also now cute in her eyes too. Lucky you!

Ok, so enough about that. I found your writing to be a breath of fresh air, and hilarious to boot. I can relate to many of your thoughts and experiences and it takes a fine writer to want to make me want to transport back to the age of feathered hair and Dr Scholl's wooden clogs. You have a real talent, Kelly. Keep up the excellent writing and try to jog a few more of your splendid memories for future books. You are on the right path...you bring a slice of joy to your readers, and really, what more could one want as an author?

Tell your agent you need to be getting more exposure. More moms like mine (and daughters like me) need to know about you & your book.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a delightful read! 14 Sept. 2014
By RMG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I adored this book! Hilarious, witty, and charming. It was a struggle to put the book down. Kelly provides a delightful, if sometimes humorously painful, walk down memory lane. How I can relate! It felt like she was sitting in my living room swapping childhood (and childrearing) stories.

I would truly love to give this book the 5-star, A-grade its stories and humor deserve. Really, I would. The English teacher in me, however, just can't overlook the need for proofreading. With a little polishing, this will be a 6-star winner!
