  4. Firstly, the book cover is interesting. Secondly, the title, I don't even know what to say! Lastly, that 56 is utterly hilarious! It totally fits the cover. It would be horrible to be a bottom-feeder at such an age though :/

  5. I would expect a memoir by Brad Garrett to have a lot of humor. Sounds good!

  6. Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about making a Friday56 hashtag on instagram? I love the idea of your meme, but I'm not so keen on microposts. Plus I think lots of hand lettered lines from books would be cute on my instagram feed!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
