Name dropping

I had a conversation with Michelle over the weekend about whether or not I should write a post about a funny little experience I’ve had over the past couple of months. It would involve some very conspicuous name dropping, though, and I don’t want to be a cheeseball. Here’s the non-name-dropping version.

Last year I read a book that I found interesting – interesting enough to write a mini-review of the book on my blog. Whadya know, but, a week or two later, there was a comment on that post . . . from the book’s author. I had my doubts at first, but verified that it was indeed the real deal. I ended up e-mailing this person with some thoughts about the comment, and further thoughts about the book.

Over the weekend, I got an e-mail reply from the author. Pretty wacky, but pretty cool, too. I’m not a fan club kind of guy, but it’s fun to see that some writers actually pay attention to what their reading public has to say, and are willing to enter into a dialogue.

So, what did Dr. Seuss have to say?

Doh! I’ve been busted. Since you asked, MO, here goes:

I loved your words about my book,
I loved them all from my very first look,
I loved them when I surfed your blog,
I read them loudly to my dog.

I think you understood my words,
You did not think them for the birds,
You read about the guy named Sam,
Who would not eat green eggs and ham.

And now I am your pen pal friend,
With each new message that we send,
And though my rhymes make lots of bucks,
Your talent in poetry really . . . isn’t very good.

Yes, that was quite………
