Oh, geez. I really stirred things up on SMOG last night.
I really didn’t think it would be commented on in such volume. I thought maybe a few of us would still be waiting for the book to arrive. Not as many people as that would still be waiting for it. But lo…
Then Ronnie Gurr and THEN Richard Houghton add comments and my toes were starting to curl with the fuss I had made.
I honestly didn’t mean to drag them into it!
I genuinely just wanted to get a handle on who was still waiting. Whether I could get an idea on if the book was just trickling through to fans or whether there were quite a number receiving it and us still waiting were just stragglers not having much luck with the postal service.
And so goes yet ANOTHER time I wish I’d kept my big mouth shut! I mean…it did help to alleviate my concerns about the book’s slow arrival, but conversely I felt like the girl that kicked the hornet’s nest.
Always acting with the best of intentions. Always ending up inadvertently stirring up trouble.
Anyway….too late now. The genie can’t be put back in the bottle.
Another day is upon us…and still I wait. With a bit more quiet reserve this morning.
The “watched kettle” is yet to boil…
