How does humor writing happen? Spend a year with columnist Ernie Witham as he finds the humorous side of family, travel, work avoidance, and, sometimes, workwhile always following the funny bone. Ernie spends every day thinking about humor, searching for humor, and writing humor. His writing life and personal life have melded into something his readers, family, and friends know as Ernies World. Now you can come along for the ride and see what a typical year in the life of a working writer is really like. From searching for that special last-possible-moment anniversary gift at the farmers market, to appearing in the movie Sideways, to helping out the alligator wrestler in the Everglades, and trying to make a living out of it all without getting the dreaded day job, youll find Ernies World is a fun and funny place to visit.
