Statement on Truffles for Future Police Reference

Statement on Truffles for Future Police Reference

I am just going to state here, categorically, for the record, that I have NOT offered truffles for anyone to go commit murder and tell me a story about it.� Also, I have not offered truffles for anyone to NOT go commit murder and tell me about it.� That’s not because I in anyway want to discourage people from not committing murder, but I just think that if I went around giving truffles to everyone who didn’t commit murder that day, I might be making a lot of truffles.� Or am I too idealistic?� Sometimes you never know.

Some people might find it strange that I am stating this so publicly, but just go see for yourself.

And read the comments, too.

    THIRD book? Sigh.
    Anyway, what I’ve been meaning to tell you, since I finished your book (which I now know is merely your FIRST book), is that, as part of your publicity or whatever, you should encourage other people to share their wedding-related hissy fits, because I LOVED your meltdown scene. Mind you, four weddings, I’d’ve melted down too. I had one small wedding that was practically an elopement but we let a few people follow us (our first mistake) and I only had one public meltdown–the rest were for an audience of one, my wonderful husband.
    Oh, and I also want your mother-in-law. Truly, she sounds lovely. These are things I can’t say on my OWN blog, because a few in-laws read it, and I’d be in even more trouble with them than I generally am. 🙂
    Now, just because you didn’t specifically mention it, is there any sort of murder-for-hire plan involving truffles? Funny how talking of in-laws made me think of that…

  • Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed my MENTAL BREAKDOWN, which is one of those weird things you have to say a lot when you write a memoir and should be a lesson to me to stick to fiction from here on out. (And it is! It is!)

    I think that’s a great idea for a contest. That way I get to enjoy other people’s mental breakdowns, too, and we’re all even. Maybe I’ll run it in a couple of weeks–in time for Valentine’s Day! (So people who are feeling sad they are not in a romantic relationship on Valentine’s Day can think, “Hmm, maybe I should enjoy the moment.”)

    NO truffle murder things. None! If I get arrested in some truffle murder plot, I’m so going to be annoyed.

    Hey, just remember, for Valentine’s Day, you’re going to be over on MY blog, ok? So be thinking of something cool for over there too. 😉

  • We could do it over there! In fact, that would be great, because then the Dees could judge the stories! I hate judging. If I have to make truffles again, though, I am totally getting gold embossed stickers that say “Laura Florand, Chocolatier” to put on the boxes. I am dying to do that and if anyone knows where I can get gold embossed stickers in orders smaller than 500, let me know. Because I am NOT making 500 boxes of truffles. No. And note I am not saying I will even make ONE more box. I will think about it. It depends how February goes. Mostly I want to have the gold embossed stickers that say “Laura Florand, Chocolatier”.*

    We all have our little fantasies.

    *Note to any students of French: It is completely anti-feminist of me to use “Chocolatier” since French law now provides that all professions have both a feminine and a masculine form and so a female chocolatier can (should) now be “Chocolatière”. BUT, I just like chocolatier better. A chocolatière sounds like a pot. And they’re my stickers. So.
