#4, 5 and 6
My daughter is sniffling. “You okay?” I ask again without panic in my voice. A survival tactic of motherhood that Charles Darwin should have noted
Etiquette for an Apocalypse
I know I promised a blog about matches but much has happened since then. Reviews, interviews, signings and the book coming out. I am busy at work on my own personal survival tactics to survive this marketing onslaught. They just happen to include some of my top ten survival traits. Let’s start by reviewing traits from a blog awhile back:
Top 3 survival traits to make it thru a Zombie or other Apocalypse:
1.Resilience 2.Will to survive 3.Curiosity
(There will be a quiz)
Survival Guide Tip of the week:
4. Keep Cool-The man in the picture above is on Darwin’s short list to extinction. If you don’t know how to deep breath, learn it. I am deep breathing a great deal lately. Yesterday I got a review that said I was sex obsessed and profane. If you go out and buy the book immediately because of these words you will probably be disappointed. The reviewer and I live in parallel universes. At this very moment I’m taking a deep breath and keeping sort of cool.
5. Have A Sense of Humor-If you are reading these posts you probably already do and have a much better chance of withstanding all purpose disaster. The “sex obsessed” quote from the review mentioned was a gift from the laughter Gods.)
6. Be an Optimist and a Pessimist-If this doesn’t make sense to you, then your ability to balance contradictions will impede your survival. I’m pretty optimistic that you will want to read this awful review of “Etiquette for an Apocalypse.” You can find it on the review page on www.annemendel.com. I’m pessimistic, or seriously concerned that if this is the only review you read, I’m F*^^ed. But then we’ve already established that I use profanity.
