Man... if that soup doesn't clear out his sinuses and kick the heck out of that cold, then I don't know what will.

Here's to curling up with the curative powers of a good book.

Beverly Diehl

Gotta take issue on this: "Permission to mail our bestseller to that mean girl who made our freshman year in high school a living terror."

That bitch can come stand in line at my book-signing, and PAY for the privilege of having me write, "You were a total c--t in high school, love & kisses, ME" on her flyleaf.

Take care of you, him, and enjoy a good book if you are getting sick.

Girl Parker

EDEN -- What I wouldn't give a bowl of Pho right now. No spicy for me! Book is in my purse.

BEVERLY -- Rolling on the floor laughing. "Love & Kisses, me" hahahhaha!!!!

Kelly Hashway

Sometimes I give up sleep to write when the house is quiet.

As for mailing the book to that girl in high school, love the idea! But I'm not sure I even want to waste postage on her. Hmm.


I'm with Beverly and Kelly. Don't waste the packing tape on her. However spamming her with all your rave reviews.... worth every keystroke.

Angi Hansen

Hope it's a great book. Tell JP he doesn't have to share EVERYTHING!

Claudine Gueh

Hi Lori, (first time here, I believe) sorry to hear you might have caught the cold. Feel better soon, and you're right: We'll always try writing again tomorrow!


Lori, seriously, are you trying to take care of JP or kill him? Lady, he didn't add hot sauce to his soup? You think? hee hee! I am laughing my ass off at this! Oh my gosh, I read that paragraph and thought, please let this be what the poor man considers comfort food! Good for you for taking care of your mate. It does a man good to understand he can be vulnerable and at the mercy of his wife. Suddenly, the movie "Misery" comes to mind. That Kathy Bates sure knew how to take care of a sick man! And she made him rewrite the story! You can add that to your list, lady! :)Remember this line--WHAT'S THE MATTER? I will tell you "what's the matter!" I go out of my way for you! I do everything to try and make you happy. I feed you, I clean you, I dress you, and what thanks do I get? "Oh, you bought the wrong paper, Annie, I can't write on this paper, Annie!" Well, I'll get your stupid paper but you just better start showing me a little appreciation around here, Mr. MAN! bwhahaha! Priceless, I tell you!

Girl Parker

KELLY -- I think you're right, as do the rest of the commenters. No wasting postage on that sad girl. But if I'm ever published, I'd love to know there was a flyer in every shop window on her street.

EDEN -- Spamming her with my reviews!!! hahhahhahahha!!!!!!! I'm hiring you for all my publicity.

ANGI -- Right?! I seriously Cloroxed this place from one end to the other. Yet here I sit, hugging a Kleenex box. So wrong. The book is excellent. "The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott." FAB!

CLAUDINE -- Thanks so much for coming by! Yep, I'm officially sick, but I'll my germs on this side of the keyboard. I work at home, which is good, but when I'm done, I plan to huddle on the sofa. My story percolates, but it will have to wait. I'm mush.

Girl Parker

BELLA -- HAAA!!! Okay. 1) JP doesn't recognize food without hot sauce. It's not food, in his world, without peppers or chilies. He asked for that crazy soup. I made a bland pot for myself, sans peppers. 2) You quoted out Misery?! Ha! I'm rolling on the floor. For some reason, JP assumes he's always in control. Is that a man thing? Cuz he clearly isn't!! All evidence is in my corner, including paper type. HAAA!

L.S. Taylor

Oh dear. Take care, and feel better soon!

Girl Parker

LST -- Gracias. I admit, I feel I might die at the moment, but JP says he felt that way before his manly white blood cells won the battle. We'll see....


I may need the recipe for that soup.
