A Phantom Fan

Seldom am I at a loss for words.

Not that I have always said the words that have come to my mind, but over the years and especially here, I have had plenty to say.

Today is one exception.

A few of my companions here on the blog have had actual encounters with actual fans.

Although I have heard feed-back from some of my published writings, I have had no close encounter of any kind with a fan who came out of left-field and approached me face-to-face.

So, I am to imagine such a scene?


Fan:“Oh, gosh, gee-whiz, it’s really YOU! I never thought I would meet the one person whose writings have meant so much to me! You have all the answers; you’ve made me laugh, made me cry, made me think, challenged me to be a better person, you turned my entire life around … and your pictures do not do you justice!

Me: “Why, thank you, Dahling! How very kind of you of take time from your dreary little life and muster the courage to approach moi, one of the Golden People.”



I have no idea what anyone would say to me if they ever read my writings and recognized me in public.

I just hope I would not faint dead away.

Maybe it’s a good thing this topic came up, I mean, I can think about it and try not to babble unintelligibly if it ever actually happens!

I’ll practice on my cats… They aren’t easy to impress.

    Babbling incoherently is probably the way I would react, too. Either that or staring with my mouth open. Or maybe I can say something like, “Oh, you must be looking for that Asian comedienne.”
