Don't Let the Pigeon Do an Interview: 02/21/09
I don't normally conduct interviews. I'm terrible at thinking up questions. I'm more a read the book and write my ideas kind of gal than an interviewer. Anyway, while trying to decide which character to interview, a little bird flapped down onto my patio railing.
Pigeon: Did somebody say interview?
Me: Oh -- I'm not even sure I'm doing this week's Weekly Geeks.
Pigeon: OOOOH. Pick me!
Me: Well, I don't know--
Pigeon: Oh come on. I'll answer all your questions. PLEASE!
Me: OK. So what's your favorite food?
Pigeon: That's easy. HOT DOGS!
Me: How did you get here? I thought you lived back east.
Pigeon: I drove a bus. But don't tell. OK? I'm not supposed to.
Me (looking out of the window nervously): Where'd you park it?
Pigeon: Um? Park it?
Me (cringing as I hear a fire truck drive by): Does Mo know you're here?
Pigeon: Sssssh. Don't tell him!
Me: Thank you for stopping by. I think I'll just skip the interview assignment.
Pigeon: BUT YOU SAID I COULD HAVE AN INTERVIEW! YOU PROMISED!
LOL! Perfect! I love it. Everyone is being so creative. Great job.

This is so cute! We love the Pigeon books.

We do too. That's probably why the Pigeon was the first character to pop into my head for this assignment.

Ohh, That is so creative. My granddaughter and I love the pigeon books. Our favorite one is about not going to sleep.

Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late is a cute one. My personal favorite is The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog. It's just so much fun to read out loud.

Great job! Thanks for the laugh. I was just trying to think of a children's book character to write about, and I have a Pigeon book sitting on my bed, so your post hit home. That was excellent. :)

Thanks! I had fun.

Intelligent pigeon, I must say!
Comment #14: Sunday, February 22, 2009 at 20:18:22
For a pigeon, yes.
Comment #15: Sunday, February, 22, 2009 at 11:12:06
LOL...has he left yet, or is he still pestering you?
Comments #16: Sunday, February 22, 2009 at 20:17:00
It's been pouring rain since last night, so I hope he's still not out there!

This is too cute. Fancy having Pigeon drop by just when you needed a WG interview! Lucky!

I had just reviewed The Pigeon Wants a Puppy. Maybe that has something to do with it.

You promised - and I am glad you did it. Very nice post. This reminds me of a pigeon we came across once. We remember it because - like us - it took the boat to Sweden. What a clever bird :)
Comment #22: Friday, February 27, 2009 at 13:25:03
Hopefully the Pigeon didn't drive the boat. Thanks for stopping by.
Comment #23: Friday, February, 27, 2009 at 15:25:12
Brilliant! Hilarious! Bravo! :)
Comment #24: Friday, February 27, 2009 at 13:27:21
Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I'm not familiar with the Pigeon books, but judging from everyone else's responses, you were spot on in your interview. Good on-the-sly, non-interview interview.

The Pigeon books are by Mo Willems. They are very silly picture books.
