|I swear there isn't food or a gap between my front teeth - WTF?|
My detractor wasn't on air, but I was still given the opportunity to correct the misconception. A Sail of Two Idiots is not so much a book about two inexperienced sailors as it is about two really naive cruisers. You can know how to sail and not know how to cruise (which is a lifestyle not an activity). My book isn't telling people to go out clueless, it's explaining (in brutal honesty and with humorous self-deprecation) about what it's like to live aboard a boat for 3 years. Non-sailors are enjoying Idiots because it's a rare look into what chucking it all and sailing away really looks like and is simply good, clean fun; future cruisers like it because I'm telling them the truth about living aboard so they can prepare properly; and seasoned cruisers laugh along because they remember the first time all that happened to them (and take notes on the things that haven't happened to them yet). Now if only I had said it like that.....
I think I need some practice (you can listen and give me some pointers - just click here, go to bottom, select 4/14/12 when available and go in 14 minutes). Yes, I was nervous. Next interview April 26th.
This week was full of bad (baaaad) and good and I'm rather relieved it's over. Let's have a laugh.
This put me in a giggle fit. Come on...that's funny (especially if you've ever had a pet).
