Last night, I had dinner with a hen friend who also writes one of my favorite blogs. (Check out Life and Laughter!
) We caught up on clucks over Mexican food, with the charm of a busted 50s record and an overly-chatty, disgruntled waitress in the background. I didn't pay much attention to my friend Peri, but I did learn that our waitress hates everything about California, Utah, and tortilla chips.
When the server was away and the record went silent for the fifth time, I learned that Peri is having a book published on December 26, just in time for the holidays. Since this bird also wants to be a New York Times Best Seller, (I'm coming after you, Peri!) I realized I had to get back to writing more. Sure, I've gone through some recent hard times, (see "I'm a Resident Loon"
and "Life Isn't Fair"
) but wallowing in a bird bath of self-pity and self-loathing won't write a book! So I'm back on the writing horse with this article.
