What I’m reading: Seriously…I’m Kidding by Ellen DeGeneres
“It’s nice to think we can trust each other. It would be depressing to walk around every day thinking people are lying to us all the time. I prefer to believe people are good and honest and respect me enough to tell me the truth. It’s not easy to find those people all the time, but they’re out there. They’re usually the people who don’t hesitate to tell you when you look tired or that you have broccoli hanging from your lip. They might be blunt and sometimes they might hurt your feelings with their candor, but honestly? You’ll appreciate it.”
I wouldn’t call this a memoir or an autobiography. It is a collection of musings on a gamut of different topics – things that cross Ellen’s mind with some good advice thrown in here & there. An amusing and poignant read – several moments hit home with me right now. I chuckled a lot & kept trying to read bits aloud to Robin while he attempted to sleep (partners beware!).
