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.
