A male counselor approaches me. “Liz says you’re a famous writer,” he says. (Liz is one of my son’s counselors).
“Uh … that’s probably an exaggeration,” I say.
He tells me that he’s a student at George Washington, and he’s written a book about the Yankees. Can he e-mail it to me. “Of course,” I say. “Definitely.”
I’m approached by another counselor. She tells me she reads this blogâ€”and digs it.
A. You never know who’s reading your blog, so never, ever, ever bash your son’s counselors on the web. (Not that I wouldâ€”they’re stellar).
B. If you are a counselor, and one of your campers has a parent who writes, make certain to compliment him immediately before tip day. The ego boost will almost certainly add an extra 5-10 percent.Â 🙂
