How Cookbooks Get Birthed


     “Hey Girl. It’s me”
     “Hey there You. Whatsup?”
     “Goin’ to the beach. Wanna come?”
     “What beach, with whom, and when?”
     “Oh don’t sound like such a Yankee gal. It’s a BEACH Bitch!”
     “Have you been watching Real Housewives again? It doesn’t sound good with a Texas accent.”
     “Oh, Cheryl, you do just crack my hind-end up woman. It’ll be fun. We can drink till we drop.”
     “And swim, and catch-up, and work on your cookbook proposal!”
     “My what?”
     “Your cookbook proposal! With my publisher. You should do it!”
     “I don’t have a cookbook- that I’ve written.”
     “Yes ya do. In your head, and in the kitchen. Golly Gee I’ve eaten your food! And you need to get it out there gal!”
     “What have you done?”
     “Well, don’t go gettin’ your stirrups in the straps but I sorta told my publisher…”
     “What HAVE you done?”
     “Ya gotta come now, so we can work out the particulars.”
     And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how a cookbook gets birthed: through artificial insemination…
