Blond Ghost Stories
We were driving to Blanco, Texas, where I gave a talk to a Lions Club over chicken fried steak and green beans soaked in bacon fat (I didn't eat any).
On the way, we discussed what I might talk about to the group.
Mark asked me if I knew any blond ghost stories.
I thought that was an odd question, but I figured he was distracting me from my talk and my excitement over the Larry King appearance. So I played along.
"Not really," I replied. "I had a dream once that Marilyn Monroe came to see me. But she was dead. Turns out I wasn't dreaming and she wasn't dead, so it got confusing."
I was making it up, of course. I was just trying to come up with a blond ghost story to answer Mark's question.
But that's not what he asked me.
Turns out he actually asked me if I knew any Blanco stories.
Listening is important.
PS - I didn't see the Larry King show until very late last night. From what I can gather from all the calls, emails and book sales I'm seeing, I must have done ok. Thank you for your support.
PPS - Some people now want me to run for political office. That's baffling. Do you really want someone leading people who hears "Blanco stories" as "Blond Ghost Stories"?
