A Quiz

I received an e-mail from the Managing Editor at Bamboo Ridge asking if it would be okay to publish "Bernie Aragon, Jr. Looks For Love" in their October issue. Do you think I screamed...

a) No! No way! Do I look crazy?

b) Bamboo Ridge? What's Bamboo Ridge?

c) Yes! Yes! For the love of God and his host of holy angels, yes!

The answer is c. I then offered to wash the cars and vacuum the homes of the entire editorial team. Every day. For ten years.

Coolio! would be a good excuse to go to Hawaii, and you know pick up your contributor's copy. Otherwise, I'll make you a mai tai.

Congratulations, Ver :) I loved Bernie Aragon looks for Love. Great story.

Thanks everyone! Eileen, if you're right about the launch I am so completely there. A rice plate from Zippy's is already calling my name...

Meanwhile, I'll settle for a Mai Tai from Gura. And I don't even drink.
