Teenagers and Messages

Currently Reading: Just bought Prime Time by Vicki Burkholder, Crazy for the Cowboy and Always A Cowboy by Cindy Spencer Pape, A Grand Seduction by Lisa Logan, and ordered 3 Phyllis Campbell books from Amazon: Always My Love; Her Knights of Seduction; and Holding out for a Hero.


NaNo Word Count: 600 on Friday; 0 on Sat, and only 100 yesterday. I think my total's around the 4700 mark. Maybe I'll do better this week??


I found this note Saturday morning before we left.

"Grandpa said yes to Oprah on the 15th."

Whaaaat? My dad and Oprah? Okay; what have I missed? Are my parents going to be on an upcoming show of lasting marriages? Health problems? Did Oprah's people happen to acquire a copy of either of my two books and want to make it part of their Book Club?

Screech! Hold it, Molly! (Sound of brakes squealing)

No. This is a simple case of a teenager not knowing how to spell OPERA!

Dad and I are set to go to the opera next Saturday with his Japanese friend, who happens to have two extra tickets. And since I have accompanied this dear, sweet lady to last year's Bach Chorale, and she is also in talks to publish her fascinating life story, my presence has been requested.

Okay. I guess I don't need to grab my fashion-conscious best friend to help me shop for an outfit to make me look my best on TV just yet.

Heart rate has now returned to normal.
