The Tao of Agnes

Agnes by Tony Cochran

Suddenly my plotting abilities don’t seem so weak.  And I’m starting to think the pony-tailed Trout with her sharp editorial eye is my Ideal Reader.  I’ll keep her in mind today as I work on revisions, and just might find a way to include a legume-related accident or two.

  1. When my son was in third grade, I cooked up a batch of 15-bean soup, which just happens to be among my favorite meals, but which he absolutely detests. When I put a bowlful in front of him (third grade, mind you), here’s what comes out of his mouth:
    “I hear my death rattle.”
    So yeah, he wasn’t my Ideal Eater.
