From the book jacket:

If you’ve ever had a conversation with a curious, red-haired traveling stranger named Meps, watch out! She probably wrote down what you said…and it’s in these pages, twisted into a hilarious and provocative tale.

In these illustrated stories from chance encounters with unsuspecting strangers, you’ll meet people like:

  • Carrie, the topless runner who popped out of the woods at Crater Lake carrying a bag of flour
  • Tim, the globe-trotting pig farmer with the fake nose in his duffel bag
  • Harley and Annabelle, the not-so-mediocre music-makers and stars of Route 66
  • Captain Craig, the self-proclaimed Scourge of Lake Union and Environs and whatever else needs scourging
  • Chicken Pox Man (but you’ll wish you hadn’t)

You’ll learn what really goes into Happy Stew, where to find the Mythical Butter Divide, and why you should always say yes and always take all your stuff.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how easy it is to get your own candy from strangers and why in the world you would want to.
