You're in the shower. School is supposed to be done for the day and isn't.
The phone rings, you hear children making a mad dash to try out their phone
manners. At the same moment hear strange squawking coming from the
backyard. Is a chicken down? Has hawk snatched her? Ahhhh. Fame and
Next your beautifully mannered offspring are screaming through the
bedroom and bathroom doors, " Mister Jemanybbbdko Camp dell is on the
phone." Your screaming, "WHAT?", back through the shower walls. Finally
one of your children creeps in and repeats the garbled name. You say, "please
take a message. I'm in the shower right now!"
You hear the patter (trampling) of 7 and 11 year old feet leaving. Only to be
replaced by 17 1/2 year olds easy glide. "Mom, Jeremy Campbell from Fox 13
News is on the phone and would like to do an interview with you this evening.
It's about our chickens and how the city is allowing more people to have
them.".... You say, "Tell him you're sorry but you're busy this evening."
Your Christmasing the house with your beautiful, loud, crazy, sometimes obnoxious, very creative and caring family!
Yep, you're to famous to do a another local interview..... bring on the
big boys :)
Ps. Oldest daughter was soooooo professional. She told him she was your
secretary. The journalist was so pleased. I wonder if he enjoyed the elevator
music daughter #3 was producing from the other line? Humbling.....
