So I was talking with one of the kids this morning, a young girl of seven years old. The conversation went something like this:
Her: It’s ‘Meet the author’ Day at school.
Me: That’s cool. Maybe you can meet me there sometime on ‘Meet the author day.’ Did you know that I’m a writer?
Her: You’re not from Australia.
Me: Well, writers come from other countries than just Australia. I’ve been to Australia. Does that count?
Her: No. Not really.
Kids. As Art Linkletter used to say ‘They say the darndest things!’
