Straining to Parallel Park in an Empty Field

If you spend any amount of time in your car, and enjoy audiobooks, you will definitely enjoy this collection! It is funny and honest and made for the short attention span.

Here's a synopsis for Straining to Parallel Park from the author, Jessica Kane:

I've always been appalled by the way ‘time’ obliterates so many of my everyday moments.  So over the course of a year, I decided to rescue them, place them carefully in my notebooks, and to try to better understand the glue that holds my life together.

I wrote down the conversations I had with my uniquely crazed but brilliant mother, and my loving but major-slob-of-a-husband.  I wrote down the things that happened on errands, on the street, at work, and while driving.  I wrote about all the irritating, ridiculous dramas that came and went.  Sometimes I wrote about my past or I wrote about the voices I heard in my head, or the neurotic thoughts that kept me up at night. 

And after collecting tons and tons of these moments, I discovered two main things:  that I like trying to run away from my moments, because I think the next one will make me happier than the one I’m in, and:  that if I stay in the moment I’m in, no matter how inconsequential it may seem, there always exists a little gem waiting to get noticed, that does make me happy, at least for a minute.
