The Names Have Been Changed...

Caroline - not her real name - was puzzled by the title of the blog post for November 9, 2010: M.Z.S.G.C.A.F.M.S. I told Caroline - not her real name - to look at the second sentence of the post for clues.

She was also puzzled by Y.B.F.I.T.W. later in the post. I explained that readers of the "26 Fairmount Avenue" chapter books knew that Tomie signed his diary entries in the chapter books "Y.B.F.I.T.W., Tomie." Your Best Friend In The World, Tomie.

Knowledge is a good thing. K.I.A.G.T.
