In No Particular Order...

  1. Proof that the internet connects people: A high school classmate of mine Googled the late, great Nick Alicino. He found this blog, e-mailed me, and announced that he lives about an hour away. I think that's one of my favorite things about this blog. I hear from old friends, other writers, and fellow Springsteen fans, sometimes on a daily basis.
  2. A manuscript you'll never read begins: "A little baby monster got lost in the woods. Daddy, I'm too scared to finish this story." Aren't daughters wonderful?
  3. Another Daughter vignette: Daughter has a "new" easel. Drawing is one of her favorite things. On Sunday, she said to the Saint, "Mommy, can I have some paper? Oh, never mind, I found some." An hour later, I said to the Saint, "Has anyone seen the top two pages of my manuscript?" Yes, you know where this is going. I found the pages on Daughter's easel, covered in beautiful pictures of princesses.
  4. That manuscript, by the way, is finally (really, truly this time) on its way to New York.

Your daughter's cute comment reminded me of a story: The other day in Target a father and his toddler son were headed toward the Halloween stuff, and the boy saw me and announced, "ooooh, it's getting scawy awound hewe!" He was tip-toeing, too. And then seconds later, after they entered that section, he started screaming and crying, dragging his Dad back to the 'safer' aisles without skulls and spiders. It was just too scawy, I guess. On his way out he was fine again. Too, too cute.
