“…ting tang walla walla bing bang,” I sing while I clean up Mister’s dinner dishes.

“Bing bang,” he repeats.

“You are just like a parrot,” I tell him. “Say, ‘Squawk, Mister wants a cracker.'”

“Squawk. Cracker.” He repeats.

Now I’d really better watch what I say.

If you could sound like another published writer, who would you choose and why?

    I want to be Mary Roach when I grow up but only because I am not imaginative or brilliant enough to be Tom Robbins. As Roach I will write brilliant and funny nonfiction on scientific topics instead of brilliant and funny and verbally mischevious fiction.
