Just a quick note for my readers (yes I know, the plural is presumptive) in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro, This Little Piggy Had Tofu will be featured in the Saint Paul Pioneer Press this Sunday. They're running a Father's Day feature about dads who blog. Mine will be one of the ten or so that they focus on.
I was interviewed and everything. I'm looking forward to reading the story, but at the same time I'm a little nervous about how my quotes will translate to the written word. The possibility of being seen as a representative of vegans everywhere stresses me the hell out.
I'll be sure to link to the story once it's online.
Oh, and a quick update on Anna's fear of me in a mask. Today I was wearing the get-up again (respirator, goggles, a black baseball cap and a white full-body protective suit), scraping the house and she pointed at me and said "Daddy!".
So at least she knew it was me. But she was still afraid to approach me. Which is fine. Because I was covered in lead dust.
Have I mentioned that I despise scraping paint? Well, I do.
Later on in the house, Anna could hear me scraping outside and she said, "Daddy's scraping Anna's house."
That almost makes it all worthwhile.
