Meet Eric George

>> Thursday, November 20, 2008

I have a shadow today, and it's not just my five o'clock shadow from never shaving. His name is Eric George, and he's a senior at Mitchell County High School. As a graduation requirement, he has to follow around a professional in the field he's most interested in, and then he has to be interviewed as though he's applying for a job. Obviously I didn't have to apply for this cushy job I've got, but we're going through the motions for his grad requirements.

So today he's going to hang out with me while I do my author thing--which means he either gets to watch me sit quietly at my computer for four hours while I write a chapter, or we can sit in the living room and watch Columbo reruns. DVD here we come!

No, seriously, we're not going to watch TV, and he's not going to watch me write. (Which would be creepy anyway.) Instead, I'm showing him all the other stuff I have to do as a writer--like blogging, updating my school visit flier, and sending out my monthly newsletter. Fun! I'll drive him to a more practical profession for sure.

Here's my WII, this is my bowl for Cheerios. Do you like pizza? Do you know how to make pizza? Would you mind terribly? Also, the fridge needs restocking with coke, and if it's not too much trouble...

I'm reminded of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer got an intern.
