So I wrote a book.
Very smart people are going to edit it, print it out, bind it up, and offer it to the general public in places like Barnes & Noble and on Amazon. I’m overwhelmed, excited, and a touch pukey, but it’s okay. I’ll be fine.
If I had a dollar for every person who suggested that I write a book, I could buy a nice pair of jeans at Nordstrom’s and have enough money left to treat myself to a double doozy at the Cookie Company. Truthfully, it never occurred to me to write an actual book until readers of this website planted the seed. Then it was all I could think about.
So I did it. I wrote a book. If you’re wondering why posts have been sporadic for the past several months, now you know why. I’ve been holed up in my bedroom, the library, and Target tapping away on my keyboard, pouring my heart out onto the pages.
That’s right. I wrote part of my book at Target. It’s not weird. My love for the red bullseye runs deep. Plus, I’m not trendy or cool enough to work at Starbucks.
So what’s this book about? Allow me to elaborate by interviewing myself.

A: My goal was to write a relatable book. I think I accomplished my goal. I hope you will laugh, blush, nod your head in agreement, and feel a sense that you are not the only weirdo in this world. You are my people. Come sit by me. I’ll help you tuck your crazy back in.
