The book hit number two on iTunes - only the Colonel herself, Ms. Tina Fey, stood in our way. To be quite honest, I liked being in her presence. I'll probably never get that close to her again.
However, I'm hoping that when I Just Want to Pee Alone rips first place from her soon, she calls her agent and has a conversation:
Tina: What just happened? Who are these Pee Alone people?
Agent: It's that crazy woman, Jen, who says she's your best friend. She's brought like 30 more people to stalk you now.
Tina: What the hell?
Agent: I know. She's a bit relentless. But . . .
Tina: But what?
Agent: Well, I read this book and Tina, I gotta tell you. I'm really disappointed that we didn't get you in it. These are your people.
Agent: Yes! Funny, irreverent moms who like to laugh at everything, including themselves. And I'm not going to lie. I even cried once or twice. This book has it all.
Agent: Yes! These women just put it out there and have so much fun doing it. Does that sound like anyone we know?
Tina: Crap. I should have been in this book!
Agent: And besides Jen, there are so many of my other favorite bloggers in this book.
Tina: I didn't realize you were such a fan of bloggers.
Agent: Oh yeah, I was following RachRiot back when she was just a prolific and hilarious commenter. I love watching Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva rollerskating in her unitard. Let Me Start By Saying has the best interviews. And I was so excited to see Honest Mom on the Katie Couric show last week.
Tina: Ugh. Was she quoting Madeleine Albright's theory on hell again?
Agent: No. I don't think so.
Tina: Hmm . . . OK. Well, it sounds like you're awfully busy with your reading. When do you get any work done for me?
Agent: I know it seems that way, but it really isn't hard to keep up with these ladies when you subscribe to them all. Look Tina, we missed the boat on this one, but we'll for sure get you in the next one. In the meantime, let's help them sell the hell out of this book.
Tina: You know what? You're right. I used to be a little afraid of Jen, but she's not so bad. Plus, Kansas is really far away from me. So, it's not like she'll knock on my door and thank me for helping her out. Right???
Agent: Definitely not. She totally respects boundaries - and restraining orders.
Tina: Great! Then let's do it! I'm going to call Poehler and see what we can do for Jen and this book! I'm on it!
In case Tina doesn't get the word out right away, I'll help you find your own copy.
