We interrupt our continuing coverage of Iceland: The Musical to bring you this late-breaking news: Final copies of Croak arrived upon my doorstep this very afternoon!
And the perfect emo MySpace photo prop:
Let’s get some reactions from the field:
Will mustered up as much enthusiasm as I think he humanly can, and, true to character, responded calmly and coolly to my blithering excitement.
Me: IT’S AMAZING I LOVE IT SO MUCH I WANT TO SLEEP WITH IT.
Will: I’ll take the couch tonight.
Via email, Dad had this to say:
“YAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!! How great is that!!!!!”
He went on to use a total of exactly 34 exclamation points.
And the best reaction came from Mom, who happened to call just a short while after I received them:
“Well, that is SO exciting, I’m just SO – Kitty is going nuts because there’s a chipmunk in the yard. Wait, the chipmunk turned into a squirrel! Now there are two squirrels! It’s like a nature center over here! Honey, I’m so proud of you.”
