Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

I just had the lamest conversation with a telemarketer.

Telemarketer: "I'd like to help you save money by switching your long distance service to MCI."
Me: (shit) "We're not really interested in switching right now."
Tele.: "Ma'am, our service is only $5 a month and 7 cents a minute. Do you currently make long-distance calls in-state or out-of-state?"
Me: (goddamnit, now what) "Uh, both."
Tele.: "Blah blah blah blah blah . . . "
Me: (putting phone down on table, walking away) "Jackson, where are you?" (pause) "OH MY GOD!"
(Came back two minutes later and hung up phone)
