The mission, should you choose to accept it: study college student behavior and report back to me.
Hi, it's Donna Michaels and that is the mission I gave my daughter’s cat Franco before we left her dorm last month. This is Jes’ junior year in college and she’s going to rush a sorority this fall/spring, depending on the ‘house’ she is interested in.
So exciting! This works out great for me too, because I’ll be writing a book in an N/A collection with two incredible authors next spring that focuses on three sorority sisters and a mystery at their college. I can hardly wait!
Did I also mention it’ll be first person? New ground for me. I’m excited about the challenge, but need all the help I could get. So, I enlisted Franco’s services to take notes and keep up on the research for me while I make my other deadlines.
Here are a few shots of him hard at work.
|Pretending to chill while secretly recording activity in the common area|
|I'm not sure what he's looking for...and I'm not sure I want to know|
|Keeping an eye on the parking lot for any suspicious activity|
|Lulling them in with cuteness. They must've been on to him|
|I'm not sure why he's inspecting my daughter's finger. It'll be in the report|
|This is where he told them to get the camera out of his face, they were going to blow his cover|
So, as you can see, I’m pretty sure he has a lot to tell me the next time we meet. Jes will fill me in on the rushing and all the steps involved, but Franco…he’s going to have the juicy stuff about college life in general so I get the vibe right. He’s my inside guy.
An author’s life...so exciting! We get to talk to some amazing people...and cats…to get the facts. Just imagine all the good stuff your pets could report...
Hope you have a great September.
Thanks for reading,~Donna
