I’m so thrilled to say that Absolutely, Positively is featured in the current issue (June 6) of First for women magazine (available at grocery checkouts + newsstands everywhere). It’s on the “6 paperbacks were reading now” page and was recommended by senior food editor, Krista Winston. Please considering picking up a copy—it’s the one with Mariska Hargitay on the cover—to take a peek. Part of the Krista's recommendation: "It was so jam-packed with endearing characters and suspense that I didn't want to set it down for a minute!"
Thanks, Krista. And thanks, First!
The Goose Bumps
This weird thing happens to me every time I sneeze. I get goose bumps. It happens just about every time, including when Wendy Watson and I were rooming together in Pittsburgh (not surprising considering how darn sick I was). I thought it was just one of those random weird things that only happen to me (and son #2), until Wendy hopped right on Google and went looking for an explanation for this strange reaction. For some reason it never occurred to me to look for a reason for it. LOL. Just thought I was...strange. Apparently there are lots of us out there who get goose bumps when we sneeze. The going theory is that the gust of air from sneezing cools something in the brain that shouldn’t be cooled and tricks the brain into thinking the body is cold which then triggers goose bumps—something the body uses to temporarily warm itself. Fascinating, no? Still strange, but fascinating nonetheless.
