Say What!!??

Today I learned something new.

If you wish to do a book signing...  say...  at the mall...

You must first take out A Million $$ insurance policy for the day.

You know...

In case someone would ...  say... Maybe get a paper cut from one of your books....

and decide to sue you...

LOL!!!

You laugh!

But I'm serious!

What. Is. This. World. Coming. To.??

Each day I think life cannot possibly get any more bizarre...

It does.

See you next month at the Country Club Mall in LaVale....

And feel free to leaf through the pages of Gracie's Diary: A Memoir.  I'll have Band-Aids on hand in the event of a paper cut.  And if there are more serious injuries as a result of the book signing,  I'll be insured :-)

Good luck at your book signing! That's mighty impressive.

Hope you don't need to tap into that insurance policy for a paper cut :)

We have our copy and Mom just can't wait to get a chance to sit down and read it. She has thumbed through it and fortunately....no paper cuts yet! Does your insurance policy cover us when Mom finally decides she's had enough interruptions and locks us in the closet so she can read in peace??? Just askin!

A *million* dollar insurance policy? Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Gloria Hood said...

Wish I could be there for some support, but my book is already signed! lol Good luck with that!!

Inger said...

I'm so thrilled that you are having a book signing. There's a price for everything it seems. I can't wait to hear how it went. All the best, dear Bobbi.

That corgi :) said...

how exciting with a book signing!! Seriously though it seems like everyone and anyone will look for a reason to sue these days. Did I happen to mention that I tripped in the house when I was carrying your book from the mailbox and bruised my left knee?? You'll be hearing from my lawyer......

(just kidding :)

Would 'break a leg' be appropriate here?! That will be a blogable experience I am sure! Have fun Bobbi!
