Nearly famous

So sitting right next to me is this book:

I opened it to read the acknowledgments:

For Josh, Em an Al — my three better halves, and never mind the math.

I beat Em in Gheos last night. I know all three of the acknowledgees. I even know the authoress.

This is SO COOL. It’s like, um, really cool. At least half my friends have had visions of writing a book and having it published, myself included. More of my friends have actually written books, myself not included. But that someone I know can have, through hard work and talent, actually written and published a real book which can really be purchased through Amazon!??! Tres cool.

So go. Buy this book. Read this book. (I will as soon as I can — only my great devotion to my children prevents me from perching on the couch right now.) This book represents the hopes that we have, but fulfilled by great efforts and abilities of Maggie.
