Let's Play . . .

Two Truths and a Lie!


1. I have a first grader and a fourth grader and a mangy cat with a skin disorder.


2. My husband is a high school computer teacher.


3. In a past life, I was a raccoon.

Last Thanksgiving, because I was wearing an outfit that was not a bathrobe, I asked my sister to take a picture of me for an author photo. The rest of my family helpfully called out lots of advice about how to stand less awkwardly and what degree to tilt my head. Is it my imagination, or does my smile look the tiniest bit tense?
