Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Motsy hosen close, right?

Scratching your head on that one? So was I. This is so not writing-related, but I ended up laughing my butt off the rest of the night, so I thought I'd share.

I was sitting in the dining room with my kids last night, and we were working on a jigsaw puzzle together. Anyway, my 9-year-old daughter leaned across the table and looked at me with an extremely earnest expression on her face.

"Momma, motsy hosen close, right?" she said.

Huh? I wasn't sure what language she was speaking. "What?" I asked.

"Motsy hosen close," she said, just as earnestly as before.

I sat there a moment or two trying desperately to decipher what my child said to me. No luck. Finally I looked at her and said, "Motsy hosen close?"

She started to giggle. She spoke again, much slower and enunciating more clearly. "I said moths . . . eat . . . holes . . . in . . . clothes, right?"

I laughed so hard I couldn't even answer. Then, after I finally did answer her, I gave her a hard time about it the rest of the night. Every so often, I'd just look up and say, "Hey, motsy hosen close."

She wasn't very pleased with me. Too bad. It was fun.
