This story is about a day in the life of a boy named David, who has lots of trouble keeping track of his 'PANTS'. Every morning when he wakes up his 'PANTS' never seem to be where he left them the night before. So every day David goes on a new search looking for his 'PANTS', never knowing if he will find them before he has to leave for school. During todays search he interacts with neighbors and assorted critters around his house hoping one of them know where his 'pants' might be. About the author: Many years ago David Hartwick was run over by a car while riding his bicycle and was badly injured. The car drove away and left him on the side of the road. He received a terrible brain injury that, even today, gives him problems. He had to relearn to read, spell, write, talk, and walk all over again. He started relearning to read again one word at a time. He began reading kindergarten books, then first grade books, then second grade books, and so on. There were times when he thought he would never recover but he never quit or gave up. One of the exercises he did to help his brain recover was to write stories. He's written over 200 stories during the years of his recovery. He is now turning some of them into books like this one. "There may be some of you kids out there that have been injured or maybe you were born with something that causes you problems. If you have a brain injury I am here to tell you that the brain is an amazing thing. It can fix itself but you have to help it to do so. I say to all of you kids, DO NOT QUIT AND NEVER STOP TRYING, and to all moms and dads please don't let them quit or stop trying. If you are an adult and are reading this book to help yourself, GOOD FOR YOU, DON'T QUIT because if I had quit or stopped trying you would not be reading this book." David G. Hartwick

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A debut collection of witty, biting essays laced with a surprising warmth, from Jen Mann, the writer behind the popular blog People I Want to Punch in the Throat People I want to punch in the throat: • anyone who feels the need to bling her washer and dryer • humblebraggers • people who treat their pets like children Jen Mann doesn’t have a filter, which sometimes gets her in trouble with her neighbors, her fellow PTA moms, and that one woman who tried to sell her sex toys at a home shopping party. Known for her hilariously acerbic observations on her blog, People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Mann now brings her sharp wit to bear on suburban life, marriage, and motherhood in this laugh-out-loud collection of essays. From the politics of joining a play group, to the thrill of mothers’ night out at the gun range, to the rewards of your most meaningful relationship (the one you have with your cleaning lady), nothing is sacred or off-limits. So the next time you find yourself wearing fuzzy bunny pajamas in the school carpool line or accidentally stuck at a co-worker’s swingers party, just think, What would Jen Mann do? Or better yet, buy her book. Praise for People I Want to Punch in the Throat “People I Want to Punch in the Throat is so good that it’ll make you want to adopt all the cats in the world. I’m not sure about the correlation, but it’s that good. It should come with a warning.”—Jenny Lawson, author of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened “Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time. From swinger parties to racist toddlers, she makes the suburbs unbelievably funny.”—Karen Alpert, author of I Heart My Little A-Holes “Jen Mann says the things we’re all too afraid to say. Her honest and hilarious writing style reminds me of David Sedaris and Tina Fey.”—Robin O’Bryant, author of Ketchup Is a Vegetable: And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves “Jen Mann’s shrewd and unrelenting assault on the absurdity of suburban life is an honest peek into the occasional nightmare that is part of living the American dream. I love Jen. I wish she was my neighbor. It’s so refreshing to know that I’m not the only one who wants to punch almost everyone in the f***ing throat.”—Nicole Knepper, author of Moms Who Drink And Swear
