I hope you enjoy my essay. I encourage you to write one of your own. Speaking of literary roots. When my oldest granddaughter was four, she thought all books were written by children. As I read Little Red Riding Hood, she looked at me and said, "Nana, don't you think the kid who wrote that had a little violence in him?" She always made me laugh out loud.
So does my hubby. This evening we passed Burger King and read a sign on their marquee announcing the BK CLUB. He said, "There sure must be a lot of lonely people in this world if they're starting clubs at Burger King. What do these people do, sit around and compare how many pickles they have on their sandwiches?" I was laughing so hard I couldn't reply. He took it literally!
Will you share with me briefly, where did your literary roots begin?
