     Noha?  Noha Agogg?  Hello?  Can you hear me?  You won a copy of WE WERE LIARS in my contest!  Now you have to come forward to claim said book, or I will be forced to choose a runner-up.  Come on now, don't be shy.  I don't care if you're operating under a pseudonym!  I just want to give you your book!  You won it, after all.  Now come get it.  I'm serious.  Look how serious I am:

     Yeah, that's me.  I usually look a little different, but that's only because I'm usually not so INTENSELY SERIOUS as I am right now.   And if you don't answer me, Noha Agogg, I will have no choice but to get even more serious, and then I will remove my glasses and look like this:

     Do you want me to look like this, Noha?  Is that the kind of person you are?  I sincerely hope not.  Look into those serious eyes, Noha.  Is that what you want me to become?  Even if you do think the very worst of the WE WERE LIARS protagonist, I still believe in my heart of hearts that you do not despise the human race quite that much.
     Justify my faith in you, Noha.   Justify my last shred of belief in humanity. 
     No pressure or anything.
     I'll be waiting. 


  1. Your blog cracks me up. Thank you for that.


    1. No, Yvonne, thank YOU for being willing to be cracked up! There's nothing sadder than being a smartass who can't make anyone laugh.
