That moment...

Where you are making a beer run and Lee Smith is in the parking lot.

"Are you coming to the reading?"

No.  I didn't know there was one.

And there is a discussion about Dimestore coming out in paperback and how the reading is kind of impromptu and we talk of book tours and wiping asses and the big win for the 'Heels.

And she smiles, tells me to get some rest, and gives me a paperback copy of the book, signed "SWVA girls 4-EVA!!!"

This is my normal.

Holy crap.  THIS IS MY NORMAL.

Yup! She's a really neat person, and grew up in the same area I did. Not QUITE a hometown girl, but close.

She was a visiting author when I was in college, and she actually remembered me when I worked a "Tea With Lee" event when I first moved here. I'm still a little starstruck by that.

It dumbfounds me. It really does.

I got dumped in Chapel Hill in some of the worst circumstances I've ever faced. But I won't lie...life is kind of magical around here.
