Someone told me about a book in which a woman character says two prayers every day: in the morning, "Whatever!" and before bed, "Oh well!" Anyone know the title?

Anne Lamott's two prayers were "Help me Help me Help me" and "Thank you Thank you Thank you".

Best answer: Here's the page on Random House's website that says she mentions in the book that a friend of hers uses those two prayers.

Response by poster: Aha, I was barking up the wrong tree thinking it was a novel. Thanks!
