In the trenches

I’m in the research stage of a new project, which means:

1. I’m reading masses of interesting but also mind-boggling info.

2. I’m taking such strange books out of the library, and searching such odd things, that CSIS is probably tracking me.

3. I’m spending every breakfast and dinner saying, “Did you know this?” and “Can you believe this?” until everyone’s eyes glaze over.

This is probably why I have to write books. My family won’t spend enough time listening to my factoids.
