I was reading "Fortunately, the Milk"to my 2nd graders today and they had a question. I promised I would contact the author and see what he said, so here it goes. In the story, you have a pink pony with a blue star, even though blue stars are last season. Why, then, is the pony wearing a blue star? They asked and were very curious. I hope you can spare a moment for an answer and thank you very much for your time and for writing this wonderful book that is getting the best reactions from a class.
It was a very poor pink pony, who had saved up all its ponymoney the previous year and got the finest blue glittery star it could. It had reveled in how fashionable it was, and been overjoyed when all the other ponies gave it envious looks and sidelong glances.
But fashion moved on inexorably in pony world and after a year the blue star it was so proud of went out of fashion. All the hip cool ponies were wearing silver stars. Our pony had spent all its ponymoney on a blue star, and was going to have to start saving up for a silver star, but it did not yet have enough.
And somewhere the fashion-star-designing ponies were laughing, because they knew that by the time the pony could afford a silver star, they would already have moved on to mauve.
A conversation I just had about tonight's Housing Works Gin Mingle
L:I’ll be mostly home so any dispatches from the drunkside world are welcome. And here’s hoping for more cute gifs.
E:Tales From The Drunkside: Autobiography of a New York Generation. Also the guy who makes the gifs (http://pith.tumblr.com/) is always at these events, so I’ll do my best to get in front of the camera, although it may end up more like this: http://emchughes.tumblr.com/post/68784401199/pith-the-2013-national-book-awards-after-party
L:Publishing girls don’t let publishing girlfriends get GIFed while Dancing On My Own/I Don’t Care (I Love it)/Ignition Remix is playing.
E:Rachel and I decided that those pictures were probably taken during Like a Prayer. Ignition Remix happened at the end of the night and we were all muuuuuuch messier by then. Also I was so into Ignition Remix that a guy near me on the dance floor asked if it was my go-to karaoke song (it’s one of three).
