In the blog The Mixed up Files, blogger Jennifer Bertman interviews children and young adult book authors. But, she paused to add this wonderful entry from her own mixed up files. It’s a record of children’s comments, overheard at Thanksgiving. Worth a click!

Here’s my own:

Overheard on Chestnut Street outside of Catnip + Bones:

There’s a laundry place in the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco called The Missing Sock. But really, The Missing Sock would be a great name for a childnre’s clothing store.

So, it’s a bit of a deeper darker secret that my favorite literature today is YA (that stands for Young Adult, for those of you not in the book biz.)

Oh, Oprah, I’m so glad you asked.

These first few months of life have been really hard for me. It’s true. My mom had to go on antidepressants it was so hard!

At times, it felt like we might not make it to four months. But here we are.
