I enjoyed this book and plowed right through it but much like Ramona Quimby's kindergarten class (bear with me) who all wanted to know how Mike Mulligan took bathroom breaks during an all-day steam shoveling job, I started to wonder how Addie's relationships lasted even a day, an evening, or both unless she followed each person into the rest room. There was a good bit of drinking going on in a lot of her encounters, and there's no way the characters got through the many hours without a bio break (hate that term but it serves the purpose). All one needed to do to forget Addie was to step outside a door, or around a corner so...my hyper-analytical mind (in cases like this, ha) had a hard time with suspension of reality & I wish the author had figured out a work around or altered her curse a bit. For the curious, lovely piece here about Ramona: http://annieandaunt.blogspot.com/2010/05/i-love-peggy-orenstein-piece-cant.html
