Sir Poops and Hair Ball: What’s Your Nosh Tuesday, Author Janet Rockey

  IMG_0485

SPAL: Today is What’s your nosh Tuesday.

HB: Again?

SPAL: Yes. Today is that day where we help promote new and Indie authors’ published work or something they’re working on from their WIPS. IMG_0490

HB: But we’re supposed to get some nosh in return for this, guys. We like cheese. We’d like to try some chocolate. And we lover watermelon.

SPAL:***looks out to the blogosphere*** Please ignore my brother. He’s stupid and rude.

HB: Well, you’re a pansy, pansy-boy.

SPAL: Anyway, we’ve got one of Mummsy’s critters today. Mummsy calls her the Grammar Angel from her writing group.

IMG_0493HB: Yeah. DO you think she has angel food cake?

SPAL: Is that all you ever think about?

HB: ***smiles***

SPAL: Just behave. I see her coming.

HB: Where?

SPAL: The pretty blonde lady.

HB: She is purdy. Can I hug her leg?

SPAL: That’s not what you do though. You’re a humper. Don’t you dare! ***he looks up*** Please nice people welcome Janet Rockey.

HB: ***hugs her leg*** We’re very happy to see you.

SPAL: ***removes HB from her leg*** I apologize, Miss Janet. ***he looks at HB***Do you want timeout?

HB: ***he frowns and puts his tail between his legs***

SPAL: ***he turns and faces Miss Janet*** I’m so sorry. This is supposed to be a professional  interview. Let us proceed. Do tell us what you like to snack on when you're writing? Tell me why you like it.

JR: I don't nosh while I'm writing because I don't want sticky, greasy, and/or orange computer keys from the Cheetos (cheese that goes crunch!).

HB: ***gasps*** No treats. No cookies. No chocolate. No nosh?!

SPAL: Every one is different.

JR: I find  eating  a distraction.

HB: OMG! I can’t believe this. Absolutely, no nosh!

SPAL: ***shh*** Sorry again, Miss Janet. Just ignore him. He’s got food issues if you haven’t figured that out. So please tell me, do you have any published books out there? 

JR: Yes!

SPAL: That is wonderful. What are they?

JR: They are all anthologies.

    1. You think so? I, Sir Poops, love kitties. I was raised by them. That's why I'm smart and Hair Ball is stupid.
