This evening I answered interview questions on poetry editing for Nic Sebastian's Very Like a Whale. My interview will be posted on July 7.
As I typed out my answers I wondered aloud to Chris if I should be concerned that yet again I'm coming off as a bitch in an interview. He said something about catching more flies with honey than vinegar.
Why the hell would I want to catch flies? I responded, They're disease carriers and totally nasty.
"Well then, you have you answer now, don't you?" he replied.
It's useful having a practical engineer around the house.
