Miss Nannie: Wren's Nest Celebrity
When Lain and I went to see Ed Negri speak, we got a signed copy of his book for Miss Nannie, who is a big fan. When we presented the book to Nannie, her verbatim response, delivered with book clutched to chest, was “I’m a Wren’s Nest Celebrity!”
And you know what? Miss Nannie is entirely correct.
Need proof? Great. Below are some of the more shining pieces of fan mail Miss Nannie received this week.
See? Here’s Nannie looking especially glamorous. Is she at the Wren’s Nest? We’re not sure. The television in the upper right corner seems mildly out of place in a house museum from 1913. On the other hand, this version of Nannie clearly enjoys all of life’s pleasures. I bet it’s plasma.
It’s not only Nannie’s looks that wowed them — apparently her talking speed was just right. She’s really what makes us stand apart from those “other” museums. Best. Docent. Ever!
What is this picture of? What’s going on? What year is it? I can be sure of only one thing: I love it.
This student really had to work hard to appear nonchalant in the face of her excitement. Sure her time at the Wren’s Nest was great, but will she return? Perhaps if her (obviously very busy) schedule allows it. Baby, you’re suffocating me.
This is my personal favorite. You know why? Because it’s filled to the brim with truth, and that’s reason enough. Or else because I like the drive represented by this marker-drawn bird. Perfection is a tall order, buddy.
