Only Salt Shakers

The book signing for The Adventures of Miss Vulpe was today. And in honor of this event I must confess that I’ve never ever stolen a sugar bowl, the way Miss Vulpe does. Only the occasional salt shaker from a bar in Upstate New York when I was in my twenties. I don’t even know why I did that except that the salt shakers were teeny tiny and seemed misplaced in the bar and I thought it was funny. I’ve long since decided that stealing (even tiny irrelevant objects) is bad karma. Except for John’s art supplies, which I still love to steal, but that’s a different story.

So how was the book signing? It was fun! John made the room look amazing for me, set up a beautiful table, champagne, white orchids, etc, and AVM and Lily both were very supportive and sweet so it was a special moment. The people who showed up for the book were all wonderful, and it was all in all a great evening. Even Miss Vulpe managed to be on her best behavior. 😉
