Granted, the polls haven't been open very long and they'll be open a lot longer, but early reports are saying that Hot Bubbles & Chocolate is a hit with everyone who's read it (and reported back to me, included a couple of people I didn't know, which is just WAY cool. Hi Becky and Anna!)
The only complaint (and that was tongue-in-cheek was from a British gentleman who said he enjoyed the book but hoped that I would consider doing "an English translation." Seems he had no idea what a "hissy fit" was. Along with a laundry list of other phrases that I had to translate for him. He did say that he has been extremely popular at his local pub since reading the book. He has interspersed "me" into his speech in the last couple of weeks and he said he knew that someone was listening when he overheard his bartender telling a man who was complaining that his wife wanted him to retire and now was upset because he was home all the time. The bartender told him to just "pull up his panties and go home and tell her not to cuss the mud when she's the one who prayed for rain." (A combination of a couple of quotes from the book). That makes my heart smile. My face can't smile any wider.
All in all, for a fluff piece that I originally wrote as short blurbs to cheer up a friend that was sick, sending her a few paragraphs a day for a while until she told me to turn it into a book, I couldn't be more tickled. I'm as happy as a dead pig in the sunshine. Happy as a tick on a fat dog. I'm grinnin' like a possum eatin' a sweet 'tater.
Did you pick up a new saying out of the book? Were you familiar with all of them? Got any to suggest for use in the next edition of the Early Grove Chronicles?
I'll be back later to check in. Y'all be good.
THAT'S MY STORY
I've never been normal. I've never tried to be. I can't imagine anything more boring.
