Not long ago I read a post where the blogger was interviewed by her cat. For the life of me I can’t remember the name of the blog or I’d link it, but my dog Lucy got wind of the idea and wouldn’t rest until I let her have a go. I’ve recently gotten behind on award thank-you’s, so I thought I’d combine them and do one interview to answer the required but difficult conditions of talking about myself. Lucy, my faithful companion will now conduct the interview.
Lucy: Ahhhhemmm. So, Library Lady . . . who is favorite family member?
LL: Oh that’s easy, my husband John.
Long pause and stink-eye from interviewer
Lucy: Are you sure about that ?
LL: Yes, of course.
Lucy: And who, might I ask, takes John for walk everyday and makes sure he doesn’t get lost, and who has also learn to fetch newspaper so you don’t have to go out in snow every morning?
LL: That would be you, but my answer is still John. He’s my husband.
Lucy: But – but I am dog! – spluttering noises – I am highly offended!
LL. Well I’m sorry, but you shouldn’t even ask questions like that, I mean I love you too but – wait a minute. What kind of interview is this anyway? We’re supposed to be talking about me. Here, have a dog treat and try to calm down.
LL: Don’t forget your crumbs.
Lucy: O.K. we try again. Tell me ten things you like to do in non-work time:
LL: Now, that’s more like it. I like to read, go for walks, watch old movies – preferably with Cary Grant, Omar Sharif, or Sean Connery type actors. I like to go out to restaurants, especially Mexican or Chinese. I like to hang out with family and friends, and travel, and sing in the choir. I like Chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven with a glass of cold milk . . . whew, three more to go . . . I like to go to the ballet, and ride horses, and I used to ski until it got too expensive. There!
Lucy: You like to throw ball for dog don’t you?
LL: Of course there is almost nothing I’d rather do.
Lucy: Raised eyebrows and perked up ears.
LL: Not now though.
Lucy: Sigh. You also like to sit in messy room and stare at box.
LL: Messy room . . . the office? Oh, you mean writing! Yes I love to write.
Lucy: Stare at box is called writing?
LL: The box is a computer, and I’m not just staring, I’m thinking. I’m creating characters and dialogue, and story lines.
Lucy: Looks to me like sit with butt in chair and forget about favorite dog.
LL: Aww – pat, pat – I never forget about you, but you have to admit you’re asleep most of the time.
Lucy: True, I easily bored, like now. Let’s go for walk.
LL: O.K. but first I’d like you to type this up and post it.
Lucy: Check. You want pictures?
LL: Yes, just make sure you show my best side.
Lucy: No problem.
