    2) I’ll show up at your kids’ school, library, or home, for a private reading, Q&A, and hey, I’ll do almost anything. For up to 2 hours. I’ll cook you dinner. Play guitar. Walk your dog. Scratch that itch on your back. It might get weird, but I’ll do it. I probably won’t do your dishes, though. I don’t do dishes. But pretty much anything else.
