The Answer


Okay. Everybody has given up.

Remember the idiom, "Everything from top to bottom?" Well, the shop keeper who wrote "The Vertical Bridal Shop" translated that idiom more or less literally.

Now, that was easy, right?

I didn't get it at all until I asked the right person.

Want more? Probably not. I'll be back from SCBWI Tuesday, and return to my usual writing chatter, but love to play with how language and culture interact . . . just a bit.

Right now I'm getting ready to turn in from great day at SCBWI in L.A. Lots to work on when I get home and lots to share.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
