My flight is at 6:25 am and I’m off to NY. But a couple days ago, Wizard said, “So do you have a back up RITA Dress?”
I was like…”WHAT?”
“You know, in case something happens?”
I’m in the kitchen, staring at him like he morphed into a demon and was eating all my chocolate. “What’s going to happen? Is this because you think I’m too fat for the dress?” Okay my voice may have pitched up to a tad hysterical. My thoughts were spinning with regret and worry. Plus I need to point out that this was right before CAGED MAGIC came out and I may have been a tad stressed.
He rolled his eyes. “I think you look hot in the dress. Calm down. I just mean, what if you spill wine on it? Or something random happens.”
Now I’m picturing the straps breaking and OMG A WARDROBE MALFUNCTION!
Wizard peered closely at me. “Are you okay?”
Is he freaking kidding me? I’m practically hyperventilating until I realized how ridiculous this is. It’s just a dress. So I snapped upright, pretended that I was walking up stairs to a stage, thanked everyone for the lovely award and added, “You all can see how graceful I am by the big red wine stain on my dress, any bets on if I make it down these stairs?” Then I grinned at Wizard. “And that’s how it’s done. If I were to win and if something happened to the dress.”
Wizard cracked up. “That’s my Witch.”
Seriously. I was freaking out over a dress. Life is way to short for that! Nothing will happen, but if it does, I’ll figure it out. Unless it’s a wardrobe malfunction…LOLOL!
I’ll try to check in on Friday and post a few conference pics if I have them (I forget to take pictures).
A quick reminder, you can follow the CAGED MAGIC blog tour here.
So while I’m gone, is this guy worthy enough to keep you all entertained?

Men. He should really know better than to throw that at you this close to the conference, but he’s a man and they don’t get those things. I’m glad you only let it bother you for a moment. You will rock that dress. And handle any mishaps with aplomb. Should there be any. Which there totally won’t. Safe journeys and have a blast. :hugs:
And drink white wine. It stains less. ;o)

Oh no! Is Wizard going to have to beg for brownies when you get back having added dress stress to your already stressed self? I agree with B.E. You’re going to be killer in that dress. The color is so perfect :). Please get some photos to share. I want to live through you ;).
Did you love flying first class or did you try and sleep? I hope you got some rest.
Have a really great time in NYC!

B.E., Thanks! I’m here in NY and all is well. LOL on the white wine, it’s very true. Although I doubt I’ll be drinking much wine at all while traveling.
Hope you’re having a good week!

Viki, I loved first class! I edited about 100 pages of some scanned files to reissue the older Wing Slayer Hunter books. It’s a great way to get some work done! I also read a little bit. Very nice!
I’ll share photos if I can just remember to take them!
