Prayer for Daughter

Mykala sent me Tina Fey’s Prayer for My Daughter, from her new book Bossypants. An excerpt, to give you a taste:

Lead her away from Acting but not all the way to Finance. Something where she can make her own hours but still feel intellectually fulfilled and get outside sometimes And not have to wear high heels.

What would that be, Lord? Architecture? Midwifery? Golf course design? I’m asking You, because if I knew, I’d be doing it, Youdammit.

May she play the Drums to the fiery rhythm of her Own Heart with the sinewy strength of her Own Arms, so she need Not Lie With Drummers.

Makes you want to read the book. If the waiting list at the library wasn’t… let me check… 1115 people long, then we’d get it there.

And seriously, the waiting list is 1115 people for the book.
