Being secular homeschoolers in a small town in Maine isn’t easy. Drifts of doom. Frost heaves from Hades. Maine isn’t for the fainthearted, but it can be hilarious, almost hysterical at times.
Luckily, Lill, Geekdaddy, Son, and Daughter are usually able to overcome almost anything – even lovesick porcupines and hunters that shoot at anything with four legs, including lawn furniture – without losing their senses of humor.
Does Daughter have Dramatic Fever or is it a case of the Instamatic Flu? Why is Son wearing a lobster tail on his neck and seeing ninjas at the deli counter? Does the Marriage Bed of Satan have a memory foam mattress and is death by arachnophobia insecticide?
Will Geekdaddy manage to survive being decaffeinated? What if his purple union boxers – the ones that say “look for the union label” on the front – fade to pink in the washer? Why did a psychiatrist mistake him for a patient at the mental health institution where he works, simply because he was talking to his tomato plant and wearing three sets of glasses?
The Life Without a Field Guide Series answers these questions and many more.
You don’t have to be a homeschooler, a parent or from Maine to see the funny side of Life Without a Field Guide.
