A Present for Mama

Before I begin, I'd like to thank everyone for your congratulatory remarks regarding my new book, Ten Zany Birds. You are all so supportive, and I want you to know how much I appreciate that!

I'd also like to let you know that I'm a guest on author, Roy Huff's blog.  I talk about surviving the publishing process. Please stop by and visit if you have a minute or two.

Now for the story.

I was busy typing on the computer, when my husband called me. "Woman! Come here. I have something for you!"

I couldn't wait to see what it was.

I walked into the kitchen and found the man standing next to the table with a huge grin on his face. He was pointing to a huge package of toilet paper which was sitting on it.

I raised my eyebrows. "An anniversary present?" I asked.

He laughed. "It's exactly what you need. Twenty rolls of toilet paper. And look, it has a new design for improved comfort."

"Thanks," I said. "You're so thoughtful. Always thinking of my comfort. And it's what I always wanted."

He walked away, looking quite pleased with himself.

(I'm trying to decide if this tops the toilet I received for Mother's Day. What do you think?)

  9. My husband gets me toilet-paper too, but only when I put it on the list. He likes shopping far more than I do. Haha! I loved your publishing steps on Roy's blog, and I adore the cover for the new book!!

    1. In my family, we get all kinds of unusual presents -- like the camel I got for Christmas. ;0)

  12. Hmmm... You might consider giving it back to him, a roll at a time, for all subsequent present-giving occasions. I think a prank-gift gifting war has begun... (No? That's just what my family does? Yikes.)

    1. Actually, my husband and his brother do that. They have something stupid they gift back and forth to each other. So silly!
