The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

Judging Naked Conversations by its Cover

I was sitting with my two-year old daughter while she ate macroni and cheese. I had just sat down with my copy of Naked Conversations and had flipped it open to the first page. She said,

Daddy, is that a book about macaroni and cheese?

I said, no, and then realized that she had judged the book by its cover.

Naked Conversations

If the cover is the same color as macaroni and cheese then the book is probably about it too, right?

Maybe she is right; after all, I haven’t read it yet 😉

God, and we tried so hard not to be considered cheesy. Oh well…

I hope my daughter wasn’t in your target demographic! Cheers!

Bright yellow macaroni and cheese? I would have figured you guys to be a “Annie’s Shells and White Cheddar” kind of a house…

Impuning my parenting ability, eh? Actually, the kids eat a variety of Annie’s products — they come in many colors — none as bright as the book cover.

If the Mac & Cheese was as bright as the book cover you would know that it wasn’t Annie’s – nothing like artificial cheese to brighten a room.

It really was Annie’s — her pattern matching abilities are clearly not (yet) as constrained as the rest of youse 😉

The conversation is evolving…
