We've all met The Perfect Woman. Her hair always look great, her clothes always match, and her makeup is always flawless. Lauren Allison and Lisa Perry have compiled a book, The Woman Who Is Always Tan And Has a Flat Stomach: And Other Annoying People, filled with stories of The Perfect Woman, and the result is absolutely hysterical.

We meet 'The Woman Who Has Her Christmas Cards, Shopping, and Decorating Done Before Thanksgiving.' There is also 'The Mom Who Throws A Cinderella Birthday Party For Her Daughter By Installing A Drawbridge To The Front Door And Digging A Moat Around The House.' And of course we have all met 'The Woman Who Has Dinner Completed Every Day by 10 A.M,' who even owns a CrockPot to keep 'Krispy Kreme doughnuts at the perfect temperature for optimal texture.'

Allison and Perry even poke fun at the men in the lives of these female perfectionists. For example, there is 'The Husband Who Buys A New Video Camera And Now Believes He's Martin Scorcese,' 'The Conspiracy Among Men to Be Annoying Just Before You Have Company,' and my personal favorite, 'The Designer Uncle Who Insists on a Biedermeier Master Bedroom' for the Barbie House he purchases for Allison's daughter. I adored this book; it will have you howling with laughter.
