Bang Bang by Chelsea Handler

I've been reading Chelsea Handlers book, Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang, and it really is a bang! She refers to her lady part as a coluspus and sometimes a tiny bean and other times it's called a pikachu. I'm uncertain if it's considered nonfiction because I can't imagine an 8 year old discovering "the feeling" of her coluspus at such a young age. I'm going to act very naive about this simply because I have a 9 year old and it really scares the crap out of me. 

Even though this book is quite vulgar and she's insulting her parents 78% of the time. . . I CAN'T PUT IT DOWN! And that's the entire point in writing a book!

In her second chapter she goes into details on fads and trends that were popular at the time. And just the mere thought of her desperately wanting a Cabbage Patch Kid with green eyes, one dimple, and no red hair tickles me in all the right places. I can relate to this!

When I was around her age I begged my mother for a Tamagotchi! What is a Tamagotchi? The coolest fucking toy in the 90s!!! I remember the day my mother said yes and finally decided to buy it for me. It felt like fireworks on the 4th of July and Christmas and Halloween candy all at the same time.

And I don't think I did it to fit in like Chelsea. Well maybe I did in a way because who really needed a digital pet in the palm of their hand anyway?

 UH ME!!!!!

I miss my Tamagotchi.
