My Little Sister on Why You Should Read My Book
That’s right. I’m totally guilting you into buying my book by buttering you up with the cuteness of my nine-year-old sister. I am shameless in my conniving ways. Anyway, the story behind this video is that I was making a vlog entry this afternoon and Ruthie was sitting nearby, making faces the whole time. She looked so darn cute that all I wanted to do was laugh. So afterwards, I asked her if she’d like to be in a vlog and we decided to make a list of reasons why people should buy her sister’s book. Contrary to what you may believe, I did not come up with most of these reasons. No, Ruthie just thought it would be funny to state that Interrupted was written by “a crazy person”. [She also wanted to put in there that you should buy the book because it will “give Rachel money”, but I quickly vetoed that one for obvious reasons] There was also a collective sigh of ohmygoshsheistoocuteforwords-ness when she smiled and said, “Because it brings joy to this house.” I mean, how much more adorable can you get? Not much.
By the way, number four was originally quoted by Ruthie as, “Because it’s hilarical,” but was quickly changed to “hilarious” when she gauged by our side-splitting laughter that “hilarical” was not a real word. “What?” she asked us, her face turning red as she tried not to smile, “It’s a word! I swear I heard it somewhere!” We tried to get her to keep it in the list, but nine-year-old pride is a fickle thing. *sigh*
P.S. Does anyone else think she has a slightly British accent? All of my friends tell me that but I have trouble hearing it sometimes.
