Monique died on Thanksgiving weekend in 2011, and along with our fond memories of her, the book remains. I happen to have several dozen copies, as does her husband Michael. We have decided to offer them at no cost to the readers of this blog. First come, first served, until we run out. Just submit a comment with your name and snail mail address, and we will send one off to you in a few days.
To whet your appetite, here is a story about Monique's humor. It occurred a few months before in 2011. Michael tells it:
Don't Worry Be Happy." I could feel the audience cringe. McFerrin gracefully answered the question and said he does not perform the song and was sorry to disappoint. Monique shot back, "I did not say I liked it." The audience broke out laughing and McFerrin fell to the floor and lay down on the stage, doing the same.
