It goes without saying that it’s every New England kid’s dream to grow up and one day make an appearance on the region’s most noted TV news magazine. Achievement unlocked! Very happy to have been featured on Chronicle as part of their segment on local authors. We got to chat about my book Questions For Terrible People and I was joined by some local comics & poets for a group Q&A based on the book. The clip at THIS LINK just shows my piece of the segment but probably my fav part of watching this live was the transition from discussing a book about a woman who conquered a debilitating mood disorder by microdosing with LSD. The anchor led into my part with “Now for a good day WITHOUT drugs, try Wes Hazard’s humor book…” and I almost choked on my rum & coke laughing. #blessed

Some sweet news: My book Questions For Terrible People was featured last month in The Style Invitational, the weekly humor/wordplay contest of The Washington Post. Columnist Pat Myers provided some sample questions and asked readers to write their own.
It was pretty cool to see so many submissions, and after writing 250 of these questions myself it was extremely interesting to see what readers came up with themselves. I had no part in the judging but the selections were uniformly intriguing. More than anything I was struck by just how…personal…a lot of these were. I mean, some of these folks were very clearly working out some life problems via submission to a humor column and I’m totally OK with that. Here are some of my potential-TMI favs:
* Have you ever hoped your kid’s team would fail to make the playoffs so you could have your weekends back again? (Jeff Contompasis, Ashbury, Va.)
* My teenager is consistently surly and rude, and says he wishes I weren’t his mother. Would putting him up for adoption be considered rewarding bad behavior? (Hilda Zampella, Falls Church, Va.)
* In a bargain with Satan, the funny anecdote you submitted to Reader’s Digest in 1982 will finally be published, but for the rest of your life you must shout out incorrect “Jeopardy!” answers at TV screens in airport bars. (Sandy Moran, Santa Rosa, Calif.)

What kind of awful are you? Would you rather give a bunch of unwitting preteens an Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test or Do the Dew out of a marsupial? I asked this crowd and…it was NOT close.
Just one of the 250 dilemmas, conundrums, and ethical moments of truth from my new humor book Questions For Terrible People available now from Amazon and at Barnes & Noble locations nationally!
