I seem to meet people everywhere and end up having really long and involved talks with them that never seem to end. I do Government Relations work. Talking is my job skill, but I didn't realize it had evolved into the old lady persona. You know who I'm talking about, right? That person who sits alone in a restaurant or bar while traveling and just starts talking to you. Everything ends up a party, no matter where the old lady is, because she can talk forever.
I've decided. I may be a granny and I may be a romance novelist, but I'm not quite ready to officially assume the old lady persona. So, here are 4 stories about me I will never tell again:
1. Taking my daughter into Governor Schwarzenegger's private office. (It is one of my favorite stories and a crowd pleaser in Europe, so not telling this story will be tough.)
2. Insulting Kevin Costner on the phone.
3. The time my executive assistant wrote my phone number in puff paint on a pair of panties and I wore them and danced on stage at an Eric Clapton concert at Dodger Stadium, flashing my phone number/panties at him.
4. Tom Selleck and the horse.
Oops, there I go again. Old lady stories above. Damn in this post. There is no cure for me, I guess. Oh well, maybe we are what we are and can't change it. And maybe it's not such a bad thing for a romance writer to have become one of those old ladies with stories. After-all telling a good story is what I hoped to do and some of the fun in my books is you will never know which stories really happened and what parts of my tales I lived.
As ever I wish you Peace.
