This is too cute not to share. On Wednesday, I met two sections of fourth grade. In one class, I offhandedly mentioned that Lemony Snickett went to my college, which immediately earned me some cachet with the kids.
Not five minutes ago, one of those students, E, stopped by my office. She asked shyly if she could interview me for their newspaper, so I agreed. It's the first days of school, and I'd been warned to expect some interviews, so I mentally prepped myself.
Taking a seat opposite me, E fired off a bunch of questions about Lemony Snickett - had I ever met him, what's his real name, who is the Beatrice he mentions, and are the Baudelaire siblings real?
I had few answers for her, but I'm extremely tickled by how much this has caught their fancy.
