I'm getting sooo excited because tomorrow we're driving to California. On Tuesday I'm meeting the famous Fishducky! And on Sunday September 30th, I'm signing at the Orange County Children's Book Festival; some bloggers might even come see me.
I can't wait to meet Fishducky. But the obvious question is 'will she like me?'
"We're looking forward to it," she said.
"But, Fishducky, you haven't met me in person--you don't even know if you like me yet."
"Oh that's right," she said.
I nearly bit my nails as we talked. She's epic, AMAZING, how can I possibly make myself duck-worthy? Then I thought about it and sighed with relief because I'm great at job interviews. Hell, I got a job as a mechanic even when I had no experience! Sometimes acting confident is enough.
"It'll be like a job interview," I blurted. "Will you have me fill out a friendship questionnaire or something? How will I know if you liked me?" And my four wild children.
"That's not a bad idea! And you'll know if I like you . . . at the very end."
So, Fishducky sent me a questionnaire. I did my best, but the official friend interview will take place on Tuesday.
Cross your fingers for me!
But I do have a few tricks up my sleeves. Cade and I are bringing our instruments. I might have candy and tell the kids they can have it only if they're darling during the interview. Oh and I made Dr. Jones a new dress so at least that'll help make a good impression.
Also, I'll make sure we all smell nice.
