some days i think the plan libby and i hatched in june 1995 to attend the 1996 atlanta olympics by saving a nickel a month is more practical than the notion of ever having jackie done.
a nickle a month, my friends. let me break that down for you.
had we adhered to that plan, by now, 16.5 years later libby and i would've saved 9 freaking dollars and 60 freaking cents. and yet it seems more possible- more doable, even- that we can go back in time and attend the 1996 atlanta olympics together with a mere $9.60 than that i will ever have a book in print.
some days, this is the worst thing ever. but most days, it is the most exciting.
