The Media Has Been Alerted

July 13, 2007 at 7:30 pm 15 comments

One of the worse things about getting sick when you’re normally the Queen of Good Health is all the hub-bub it causes.  Two cycles of antibiotic and ear drops finally have me back to normal but not without considerable panic by Pap who not only alarmed all five of our children and all of our friends, but also, quite literally, alerted the media.  Allow me to explain…

It’s pottery week in my part of Ohio and Pap is the Chairman of the Pottery Festival.  In the past I was in charge of advertising, did most of the announcements and ran the talent show and the Queen’s Pageant…so everyone knows me.  When I didn’t show up for the pre-festival advertising, rather than tell the media that I was no longer handling those duties, Pap told them I was sick…in great detail and with an enormous amount  of exaggeration I’m sure. 

Up to all kinds of nonsense that I’ll eventually blog about…for now, have a great weekend!

    Was that the deadly ear infection that is sweeping the western world? I bought millions of tins of beans and shut myself in the cellar on the strength of it. Can I come out now?

    Glad you’re feeling better, and I’m glad it wasn’t gynecological-that would have really been embarrassing to see in the local paper!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
