Humoir (un)Limited

There is, perhaps, a touch too much cutesy in combining "humor" and "memoir" into humoir, as in "The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad." T4YOVHoaDD is a short collection of essayist — and father of a ninish boy and sixish twin girls — Joel Schwartzberg's ramblings on fatherhood that have appeared on web and page. And while there are passages that seemed culled from a best of Lifetime (the cable channel) collection there are certainly a greater number of scenes described that will suggest a tear from observing the love of father and kid.
