mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press, 2011).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works at a nonprofit and is just about finished writing her first novel.

This morning I went to the dentist's office.

I went up to reception and said, "Hi! I have a 10:30 cleaning." The woman looked at her schedule, and then she looked at her computer, and then she looked at me. "You're not on my list."

"I have the reminder you mailed me right in here," I said, digging in my backpack. (I'm between purses right now.) "Here it is!" I read the postcard. "Did you know there's a Thursday the 17th in March, too?" I asked.

"See you next month," she said.
