Modine Gunch is no mere Southern humorist like Lewis Gizzard. No. Modine Gunch is Everywoman who thanks God for indoor plumbing because the bathroom is the only place to get away from the kids, who's tempted to clean the kitchen floor with a garden hose, who wonders why department stores arrange bras on racks by size but don't do the same with athletic supporters.
But she manages. She mops the floor with towels on each foot. She feeds her kids prunes and tells them they are Texas raisins. And she makes us laugh out loud, because her stories hit home.
