The form for my daughter’s reading olympics contest at school has space for books read by parents. As Min has only read video game magazines this month, I am in charge of filling that space.
Here’s the problem: With the exception of Blessed Unrest, all the books I’ve read have been related to my book-in-progress. They have titles such as Wicked Plants, The Poison Paradox, and Venomous Animals of the World.
I’m thinking that if I put these books on my reading list, the teacher may make an immediate call to the loony bin, and you may soon be reading this headline on the front page of the local newsletter:
Mom of Two Arrested in Connection with Poisoning Plot
Please be advised in advance that I am completely innocent.
