So, This is What It’s Like to Be Famous

I got recognized in Starbucks today. I was ordering my hot chocolate when the barista asked “Aren’t you an author?”

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.

  5. Your answer to “Aren’t you an author?” is “Kind of?”

    Your book is on a bookshelf next to Walden right now–you saw the TwitPic!

    Come on–you saw “Ghostbusters.” If someone asks you if you’re a god, you say…
