A Guide for the Newly Married Debuts at #1 on The New York Times Bestseller List
By Lisa Penniman
Kennebunkport, ME – Newlywed Kimmy Pemberly attempts the exercises shown in Chapter Four of local writer Buffy Fitzpahtee’s latest book Marital Harmony From This Day Forward. The chapter entitled “Ways to Sooth Your Man” helps newlyweds effectively deal with those new and often raw emotions that can arise from such things as “I Just Had to Have It,” “Adventures in Third World Cooking,” and “How I Learned to Love the Junior League.”
Kimmy especially likes the photographs and easy to read diagrams that accompany each chapter. “Pictures make it fun!” she says.
Here’s Kimmy following the steps to sooth her man as he recovers from a recent altercation with a local fisherman. Jeffrey, calmer this time as a result of Kimmy’s ministrations, examines the statement which arrived in the morning mail itemizing last month’s lobster dinner for forty-eight of his wife’s sorority sisters.
Kimmy, with her elbow firmly planted directly into the soft spot above Jeffrey’s collar bone, gently holds her husband’s head while singing a soothing African song, known among the natives to calm area wildlife after being shot at by tourists.
That a girl Kimmy!
