The pancakes who must not be named...

I spent the weekend in Montgomery, Alabama to speak at the MFA Class of 2008 graduation. It was a good time and I got to see some great friends. I arrived Friday night - late - and almost immediately was swept away to Ihop with Mike, Lynn and Kerrie. Good times were had by all... but I couldn't help but sense that something otherwordly might be in our presence. Not a "wow, Ihop is haunted" kind of feeling, but a sense... a tingling... that danger lurked nearby.

It wasn't until we left that I realized what I was feeling. To the right is my evidence that this bench at Ihop is the "bench who lived." No one else seemed particluarly impressed by this, but I knew. I knew that seven books later, this bench would be a milestone in children's literature.
