"Big Sister, Little Sister at the zoo, having fun. Blowing bubbles under the sun."
I grabbed my phone. "Hello...I just opened my book to sign it, and I found someone else's book in mine for the first five pages. This is inexcusable! Amazon should be embarrassed! It's really bad poetry too!...You can't get me another copy until Tuesday? That's unacceptable. I'd like to speak with your Manager."
The Manager was equally patient and apologetic. He assured me that this occurrence is a rarity. I assured him, however, that this assurance doesn't help me; it was my last good copy. Ultimately, they sent me five free copies. I'm good with that.
Please note that I don't mean to bash Amazon-Createspace. They have been very friendly and easy to work with. I recommend CreateSpace for anyone interested in self-publishing. Yet I'm still baffled as to how a bit of the sisters got into Just the Right Time.
After researching this sisterly literature, I learned the true meaning of "Don't judge a book by its cover." See, Big Sister is the author. Plus, Big Sister is only 4-1/2! I'm so sorry, Big Sister. I didn't write my first poem until age 11. Keep at it, sweetie. You're gifted beyond your years. I didn't mean those nasty things I said about your poetry. Well, I did. I just didn't realize you're a preschooler. Blow more bubbles. Have more fun with Little Sister. Then, write more poems about it all, honey.
I don't have new pictures for Sundays in My City, so this is my Sunday post. Have a great week!
