OMGOSH! Someone Get Me a Cape!

Just found my mail to find the following in my inbox. It was written to a teen who test reads for me and who is a writer herself. DAY MADE!!

"Today at school, we had to take the [standardized writing assessment]*. The prompt I got to write about was one person that was an influence on my life. I picked you. Yep, that's right! You got a whole essay written about you. It looked like a "4" to me. 4 being the best score you can make- 1 being the lowest. Five paragraphs long. I felt cool, too. All the other people that got that prompt wrote about their mom."

*Details muddled to protect the author. AND SHE GOT A GOOD GRADE, SO THERE!

This is why I do it. I'd forgotten for a few minutes today. Also, I feel very . . . humbled and honored.

Sounds like a stalker to me.

Do not make me come smack you upside the head. You apologize in case she's reading this!

Besides, stalkers do not help you deal with snot-ridden babies in the church nursery!

She says she busted out laughing, which I assume means you're forgiven.
