I don’t often get recognized in public (partially because I don’t leave the house much but also because authors aren’t rockstars) but when I do it’s often very sweet and somewhat awkward because I’m always so happy to give readers a hug but then I usually have to apologize for being so boring in real life. So today when this young girl handed me my chicken nuggets at the drive thru and then was like, “Oh my God, are you? YOU ARE!” I just sort of smiled at her and the guy working the window with her looked at me and she said “DO YOU KNOW WHO SHE IS?” and he was like, “No. Should I?” and she was like, “Seriously, Daniel? What is your deal?” and then she apologized to me for Daniel and I was like, “No worries! It’s sweet that you even recognized-” and then she turned to him and was like “Ms. Frizz, dude!” and he stared at her and she said, “From The Magic School Bus?” and he shrugged and she rolled her eyes and yelled, “MS. FRIZZLE IN THE HOUSE!”
Thank you world, for always keeping me humble.
Ms. Frizzle out.
