Michael Phelps is writing a book.
I'm guessing, just a wild stab, that somewhere near Baltimore a ghostwriter hit the jackpot and will spend the next month hanging on every word Phelps says. They are getting this baby out in time for Christmas, so its obvious Phelps is not going to write it himself.
The book is going to be called Built to Succeed, and it'll outline his philosophy of training as well as his life being raised by a single mother.
By the way, that single mother is to blame for a wee little shopping spree I took yesterday. Women of a certain age, such as myself, are greatly enamored of shopping at Chico's for a variety of reasons. Chico's clothes have a certain, highly recognizable look to them. Every time I saw Debbie Phelps sitting in the stands, I'd think, she's wearing Chico's.
Well, I was right. And the company figured this out, too, and immediately put together the Debbie Phelps Collection on their website.
Pretty brilliant marketing, don't you think?
I was reading about that yesterday and thought, hmm, Chico's, its been awhile. And I have coupons, too! Maybe I could just take one tiny little look at the website….
And thus a shopping spree was born.
I justified it by telling myself I need clothes for the upcoming orientation weekend at the Loft in Nashville, and its true. And by the way, while I'm speaking of the Loft, our next semester kicks off on September 12th in Nashville. There's no better way to learn to write than to study one on one with a mentor.
And I'll be stylin', too.
