Last night, Rob was sitting at the kitchen table reading the weekly edition of the Washington Times while I curled up on the living room couch poring over kitchen makeover books. Here is the conversation that flowed between rooms:
Rob: You made the Washington Times!
Rob: You're mentioned in the Washington Times!
Me: By name?
Rob: Well, not by name. But it's you! You're famous!
What happened was that Pete Vere's review of Nancy Brown's book The Mystery of Harry Potter made the Washington Times. In the review, Pete writes, "Then one day, she discovered that another Catholic mother from her home-schooling circle considered the books to be good children's literature."
I'm the "Catholic mother from her home-schooling circle."
I'm famous. Sort of.
