Paul Reiser decided to attempt the difficult task of creating his own book.
He dedicated it to his wife Paula in 1984 ("To Paula, who makes the dance so fun. And so worthwhile"). This book brings back reality to most people who pick it
up and read it. The neat thing about this book is that it starts on page 145 and ends on page 348.
This outlines that for one Paul is always creative and two he makes an effort to show that he is funny
both on Mad About You and in real life. His philosophy on doing this is that "when I
am reading, I love being smack in the middle of the book. Pages behind me, pages ahead of me. It's too overwhelming
to know there's so much left and you're only on page 8." [Taken from Couplehood - Author's Warning (unsure what page it is on ??)]
So there we were, on the brink of the Next Big Thing. Forever. The Final Frontier.
We stared at each other for a moment, and then I thought, "Uh-oh, if this person's going to be with me forever, she's
going to find out what I'm really like. That can't be good."
I've discovered that while showering, the areas of our body that we spend the most time scrubbing are not necessarily the areas that need
the most scrubbing. There's a gap between Scrubbing Supply and Scrubbing Demand.....
Your feet, however, which really need the attention, get nothing. Admit it. Your feet haven't been scrubbed since you were in a bassinet. They're just too far away. No matter how short you are, it's not worth the effort. So you forget about them. "Well, they'll get dripped on. They'll be fine."
A lot of couples shower together. It's supposed to be romantic and sensual. Truth? It's not all it's cracked up to be. Because one of you is not getting
water. On eof you, therefore, is not taking a shower.
With some people, you can tell by the way they ask that they don't really
care. Listen to how they say, "How are you?" They don't really say, "How are you?" They say, "How are ya?" Not the same. They hit the "are" and shortchange the
"ya". "How are ya...how are ya?".
Obviously. Men are the ones who made up the Bing-Bang-Boom approach. And
not because we're bad people-it is simply that that's how we would make love if we were by ourselves.
And I'll tell you something else: Even within the Bing-Bang Boom, we only made up the "Bing" and the "Bang" to get
the "Boom". "Boom" was the objective the whole time.
There are many more funny parts in the book. It's Paul's first novel and he plans to make another one called Parenthood. For two young adults in a relationship, his next movie might be hard to relate to. Though, Parenthood should be just as hilarious as most parents first starting out always run into difficult situations. Look out for his new book coming out soon!!
