On Saturday I was in Utah for family things and Jolly Fish Press’s super fun staff snagged me and brought me in to the Provo Library after hours. We did an author interview they videoed and will be putting on the book’s website. Interview! The questions were fun, like what’s sumo all about, and what’s the main character like, and how is being fat still a bastion of discrimination in our culture. The interview is slated to go up when the book site goes live–hopefully the week of launch (just three weeks out or less! Wow!)
I’d prepared some, but unfortunately more thought probably went into what shoes and dress I should wear than what I should say. That strategy has served me poorly in the past, too, like in the 8th grade when I spent all week thinking about what I should wear to the regional spelling bee and then got out on the FIRST word. First word, first kid out in the whole region. Nice. But I looked cute in my grey linen Gunne Sax dress with the white lace bib collar and the pink strand of pearls. I hope I didn’t sound like a discombobulated lobotomy patient.
If I did, at least my shoes looked cute. And my dress. That was cute.
