I got recognized in Starbucks today. I was ordering my hot chocolate when the barista asked “Aren’t you an author?”
And I said, “Kind of.”
And she said, “I knew it. I saw you at the Southern Festival of Books. I bought your book. I haven’t read it yet.”
And then she wrote my name on my cup without me telling her what it was.
It was the most heebie-jeebie inducing thing that has happened to me all day.
