Child #3 is my 9th grader son. (In case you've forgotten. ;) )
Child #3 (spoken offhandedly): I saw a guy at school reading one of your books.
Me (excited): Really? Wow! Which one?
Child #3: The pink one.
Me: Wow! A high school guy reading I SO DON'T DO SPOOKY! Wow!
Child #3: Yeah. I said to him, "Hey, my mom wrote that."
Me: Really! You said that to him! What did he say?
Child #3: He said, "Yeah, right."
Me: "Yeah, right"???? He didn't believe you??!! Did you tell him you're a suspect in the 3rd book? Did you tell him that???
Child #3 (says nonchalantly over his shoulder as he leaves the kitchen): Nah. I went to lunch.
Keep in mind this is the same kid who, a couple of years ago, after doing a book talk on I SO DON'T DO MYSTERIES, informed me he'd told the class he couldn't remember the name of the author!!!
