Things I learned this week:
I’m not the one losing sleep at nights, but there is something about the small red tongue and dainty fingernails of an infant (wearing a gigantic bow) that makes it seem like sleeplessness would be worth it. Especially when she is in the crook of your elbow and opens her big blue eyes to look at you.
The ukulele is infectious. Both my aunt and a friend of mine bought one and are learning to play it. Evidently, the infection only spreads to other females. We’re trying to convert my mother.
You know those employees you were told you really shouldn’t trust? Yeah, you really shouldn’t trust them.
It is not editing five chapters a week that is hard. It is making yourself sit down to write anything at all that is the real struggle.
Bonus miscellany – How can you tell you work at Disney? My boss just sent me an e-mail in which one of the lines was: “Damn chipmunks! Always causing trouble.”
