Folks, it’s somebody’s birthday!! Lady Bibliophile is turning 21 today! I hope you enjoy this interview that I put together with her characters. :) ~Junior BibliophileThe Interview:
Me: HEY! Jaeryn, Ben, Terry, I’m glad you’re here!!
Terry: HEY HOW ARE YOU? IS IT SCHUYLER’S BIRTHDAY? That’s so exciting!!
Me *catches Ben with medical files*: BEN. You shouldn’t be looking through those right now. This is time for a nice interview for Schuyler.
Ben *protests*: I don’t have time for this.
Me: Jaeryn, you’re being awfully quiet over there.
Jaeryn *twinkling*: I really have nothing to say.
Me: I’m very sorry, Jaeryn, about how much I’ve teased you. Let’s put it away for one day, so Schuyler can have a nice interview. I’ll even give you chocolate.
Jaeryn: Really now? I bet you won’t be saying that tomorrow. Are you resorting to bribery?
Me *splutters*: Well…*brightens* It’s dark chocolate—you like dark chocolate, don’t you? And I made you some tea too. TERRY. Wait, where are you going?
Terry: I was getting bored without Acushla. *puppy dog eyes*
Me: Boys, just give me a few minutes of your time. Please. We have to pull this together.
Ben: Alright, but we only have a small amount of time. I have to go to a patient’s house in ten minutes.
Me: We can work with that. So, first question. What do you think of Schuyler as an author?
Terry *mournfully*: I wish she was a little nicer to me.
Ben: I don’t agree with all her choices, but overall, I’d say she’s nice to give me Charlotte.
Jaeryn: I’m not very concerned about what she does in the future. I can handle her.
Me *chuckles*: We’ll see about that.
Jaeryn *eating chocolate*: I thought we were supposed to be friends for the day, little Rascal.
Terry: Can I have some of that chocolate?
Me: Terry, chocolate isn’t the purpose of this discussion. We’re talking about Schuyler.
Terry: How about we talk about Acushla instead? She’s really nice, you know.
Ben: No, Terry. We ought to be considerate even with a renegade author.
Me: I am NOT a renegade author.
Jaeryn: *mutters something about renegades*
Me: Okay, we got off topic again. How does Schuyler keep you all straight?
Jaeryn: She doesn’t. Trust me, she doesn’t know what to do with us.
Me: Then how does she keep me straight? Anyway, next question. What would you wish Schuyler on her birthday?
Ben: I wish that she wouldn’t do so many bad things to my life.
Me: No, I meant, what’s a birthday wish you would wish for Schuyler? Like ‘Many happy returns’ or something like that.
Terry: I hope she lives a nice long life and gets to publish lots of books. And maybe lets me kiss Acushla.
Me: *facepalm moment* What about you, Jaeryn?
Jaeryn: I think you’re downright friendly to me right now. What’s up with you, little Rascal? Let’s see, I hope her dreams come true, and that she always remembers the love of Ireland.
Ben: Junior B. likes you calling her a little rascal, you know. I hope Schuyler always has good family relationships, enough money to pay the bills, and abundant knowledge of Christ’s love.
Me: Those are lovely birthday wishes, boys. One other question to wrap this interview up: What are you giving Schuyler for her birthday?
Terry: A BIG HUG and loads of Irish smiles.
Ben: I’ll give her a Dicken’s book. She seems to like that sort of thing. By the way, I have to get going now for that patient call.
Me: THANK-YOU, boys. You are all so nice to work with. I hope you have a lovely rest of the day, and you’re welcome to stop by for cake and presents later.
Ben: Happy Birthday, Schuyler. *disappears*
Terry: Can I bring Acushla when I come visit later?
Me *beams*: You can bring Acushla.
Terry: YAY! Thank-you, Carrie-Grace!!!! I’m going to go and get Acushla and we’ll be back for the chocolate cake! *dashes off*
Jaeryn: I’d better be going too. Thank-you for the chocolate, Junior B. It’s been a nice interview with you. *flashes smile at the blog readers* Goodbye, everyone!
There you go, girlie! I hope you enjoy the boys’ efforts to pull it all together. Ben is paying a fortune for the Dickens’ book and Jaeryn buys premium dark chocolate, so you’re in for a treat. But maybe you’re looking forward to Terry’s hug and Irish smiles more. :)
I hope you have a wonderful year full of rich blessings. Thank-you for being such a sweet sister. < 3
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. ~Jude 24-25
Happy Birthday!! < 3
