Bubblegum, Bad Food, Bad Doctors
Date: 28th April, 2023
Publisher: AUSTIN MACAULEY PUBLISHERS
This collection of almost completely true short stories spans six decades. Humor is the main ingredient, spiced up with a spirit of adventure, action and high-risk behavior often bordering on disaster. First, the stories delve into author Ross C. Dumoulin's childhood experiences, firmly entrenched in 1960s mentality and culture. You will read about way too much bubblegum and Ross's kid-jobs as Paladin and Zorro. And you will learn why he put greasy sausages in his pocket. There is also a confrontation with an evil killer plant and its nasty consequences. Later, the stories move on to family life and moments of panic, such as the day 85,000 L of water tried to make its way into Ross's basement. We also have a tale of transporting a full can of paint inside his new car. What could possibly go wrong with that? As Ross slides into his 60s, he experiences a series of medical misadventures. You will learn about little gems of highly dubious advice from his doctor and find out why he was labelled as "borderline normal." The last three stories are of the heart-warming variety, as they relate the author's volunteer work with children and his efforts in making their lives better. These stories celebrate children, their desire to play and laugh, their joie-de-vivre and resilience. So, if you need a laughter-break from what the world has been going through over the last few years, if you want to escape into a funhouse of thrills and spills, then read on!
