hairy potty

I was speaking with my sister about how although I don’t need to be rich, it would definitely make things easier. It’s just a basic need to be not worrying about your livelihood all the time. I’m not talking in the $100 millions, but just money to pay bills AND save for retirement AND save for college AND perhaps even buy gifts on occasion and new clothes once a year and go on a nice vacation? Too much to ask? Hmm.

I need to write a book. I was just reading how JK Rowling is possibly $50 million richer than the Queen of England, and it got me to thinking: I need to write a book. Hopefully one that sells.

So the “Magic” thing was big about 10 years ago. I know because I was reading Harry Potter to kids who I was overnight babysitting for, and I was dating Carpenter at the time, calling him at night after the kids were in bed and (yes, I will freely admit this) daydreaming about when we would have children together. I’m such a sucker :)

Then a few (5?) years ago it was vampires and Twilight.

So what would sell? Let’s see. What would you buy? Because I have a really, really great idea. It’s a series that any parent would appreciate where the things we clean have a life of their own. Maybe…Hairy Potty? Yes, it’s really scary, and it’s living here at my house, upstairs.

What about a family of dust mites that go through the trials and tribulations of surviving in a household, vacuum cleaner always on the prowl, lint rag just waiting for them. I can really see this working on so many levels. “OH nooo! It’s the LEMON PLEDGE [dust] EATERS! Run for your lives!!!” Maybe I’d make even more money if it was organic-y, like, “They’ll never get us, Mitch! [hysterical laughter] They’re using vinegar and water! HAHA!

Okay; it’s just an idea. But at least I’m still having them, right?

What do you want to read about?

I will buy this book! I like it already! Strikes me as a kid’s book for grown ups!

That reminds me a little too much of “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”. I think you should write a book of short stories. Something along the lines of Politically Correct Bedtime Stories by James Finn Garner. I’m SURE you could come up with an awesome twist.
