So Wouldn't It Be Nice If We Could Live Twice In Just One Life


While at Borders the other day, I was standing in the magazine section, looking at my luscious Man Candy in DNA Magazine. Just then, the door opened and a little girl came skipping past, singing about how she was going to get a cookie. My response took me by surprise. I was jealous.

As happy as I ever am, I don't know if it would be appropriate to skip and sing about it in public. I think people might even look at me funny if I was out in town singing about how glad I am to be in an anthology or how much I love my shoes. This little girl was so happy, she just had to express it. I wish we didn't have to lose that as adults. Or, it we don't lose it, we sure have to hide it.

So, maybe, just maybe today I'm gonna sing a little. Sing about how great meeting everyone last night was. Sing about how happy I am to be in the air conditioning and sing a bit while I'm making my lunch. Who wants to come skip with me?

Thanks, Gigi. I would have responded earlier, but I had some skippin' and singing to do!!

Thank you for the wonderful compliment. I'm so glad I could encourage smut reading. That is the dream. ;)

Hi Heidi,
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed meeting you and your husband at dinner on Sunday. We had such lively conversations floating about the table along with great food and fabulous wine. I hope we can do it again sometime.

Heidi! Skipping and singing is good -- I think we should all do more of it!

It was wonderful to meet both of you! I definitely think we should plan another smut summit!

Heidi Champa said...

Thanks DeDe and Marina. It was a great time. Here's hoping we can all get together again soon!!

Of course, of course, sing, skip! I would gladly have done that across the parking lot with you at either the restaurant or the hotel or both last night! :) (I am laughing, but I'm also serious!)

It was fabulous to see you guys!!

Heidi Champa said...

You too, Emerald. It was such a fun night. Skipping might have been difficult in those boots, but it would have been fun none the less. Next time, for sure. :)

Count me in for the skipping and singing! I'll even throw in some faux tap dancing and a couple of Charleston knee-shuffles (or whatever they're called). And, of course, count me in for the "had a fabulous time with all of you!" sentiments.

I skipped down the hall as school last night when I got a 99 on my test!! People did look at me funny!

Gotta love those 99's, Patti. They were looking at you because you are so awesome!
