Not Quite Bossypants

Question: Your blog is about to be recorded into an audiobook. If you could choose anyone — from your grandma to Samuel L. Jackson — to narrate your posts, who would it be?

Initially I thought I would want someone British like Kate Winslet or Catherine Tate to narrate my blog. Sometimes my internal voice likes to take on a British accent so it would be fun to hear what that would sound like out loud. It would also lend my blog a certain gravitas it might be lacking.

Dolly Parton would also be fun. She has a good mix of charm and sassiness. I would give her free reign to insert as many “honeys” and “darlin’s” as she sees fit.

Or maybe Sofia Vergara…

Basically anyone with an interesting accent.

But after serious consideration here’s how I think I would like it to go down …. 

Each post would open with Macdonald Carey saying, “Like sands through the hourglass so are the days of Jean’s life.” This would make 14-year-old me very happy. 

Then Tina Fey would narrate. She’s the celebrity who’s the most like me – she likes comedy, has brown hair and writes characters who sit under Slankets and eat night cheese.

Amy Sedaris could do any girl voices and David Sedaris could do the boy voices. Because I need to work amusing accents in somehow.

I really see this happening. Someone get Random House Audiobooks on the line.
