I Gots Your Diplomatic Immunity Right HERE.
Hey, did you know that the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature will be in town tonight (the one on the left)?!? THE MAN who brought us Stinky Cheese Man and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and Knuckleheads and Time Warp Trio and guysread.com and a new telling of Alice and TRUCK TOWN?
Well, that man will be celebrating Children's Book Week at Secret Garden Bookshop in Ballard tonight at 7:00 pm. The event is open to the public. Get up close and personal with a bonafide dignitary. There will be snacks. There will be goodie bags. There will be a funny man, perhaps in a Miss-America-style sash, arriving in a little red car that says "Honk If You Like Ambassadors" on the window. There might be some gracious bowing.
Martha says when you meet the Queen of England you can never turn your back on the Queen, so if you leave a room you have to walk backwards out of it. In honor of Jon's visit, I think we should all try to do that as long as there aren't any enormous pits or potholes by Secret Garden.
Get a bit of Ambassador pre-funk here:
