I got a rejection from Lana Turner on Easter, which felt extremely disrespectful to Jesus, but the next day Notre Dame Review accepted two poems. I mentioned this on the phone to my mother, and she got more excited than she's basically ever been, and I couldn't figure out why until it occurred to me that she maybe thinks Notre Dame Review is an official Catholic magazine. That publishes prayers. Sorry mom!

Perhaps it was her joy at knowing that you would not be having dead celebrity lesbian sex with Lana Turner?

Why would anyone be happy about that, ever?

I can't imagine anyone rejecting your work ever. I would start my own journal to get you published.

Don't tantalize me, Rebecca! My mouth is watering now, for the journal you would put out.

P.S. That came out sexier than I intended.

Sexy beast!

Perhaps your mom is a big Ara Parseghian fan. At least she didn't moan when you told her and whimper, "The bells, the bells." I don't think she did. I'm sure you'd have mentioned it.
