A postmodern memoir about the power of saying thank you to the ones you may not have wanted to thank at the time ...
There's no such thing as a perfect life, but there are perfectly hilarious moments. The best stories are often about the lowest points in our lives - the soul-crushing jobs, the bad boyfriends, the terrible holidays, the betrayals and heartbreaks. These are the stories I tell people to make them like me, but, more importantly, they've helped me learn how to like myself.
So this book is a collection of thankyous and acknowledgments:
Thank you to the woman called 'Becky' whom I was named after - because of you, no one expects me to amount to anything great and that is true freedom.
Thank you to an ex-lover who said I was 'in good nick', as though I were a 1998 Toyota Corolla with a new paint job.
Thank you to the coked-up real estate agent who, while lecturing me and my friend about the importance of travelling, fell down a flight of stairs.
Thank you to the woman who approached me after a gig and told me I needed to download the Headspace app.
You've all taught me that you can't control who comes into your life or what happens to you, but you can decide just what it is you take from them.
