One of my very favorite children's books is A Hole is to Dig, by Ruth Krauss and illustrated by Maurice Sendak. My blog post today is inspired by it.
A girlfriend is for . . .
changing the passcode on your cell phone and making you crazy as you lock yourself out of your phone trying to guess the code, and then to be told the code is "love" and forgiving all.
A hole is for . . .
skirting around as you walk the fine line of writing about your adolescent and teenage boys' love lives and respecting their privacy.
