You Know You’re Jealous

The St. Patty’s breakfast was a fiasco. Too many people, not enough biscuits and champagne. Fortunately we made it out alive. Nick’s friend’s book-signing was signature-y. And the knitting group was small but fun. It was a nice 2 hours chatting with five other ladies of various ages and knitting skills.

But Sunday. Ahhhh Sunday. On either side of it, I gathered and planted. Gathered from my grandmother’s patio personal jungle, and planted in my no-longer-so-bare flower beds.

But it was the inbetween. The inbetween of which you know you will be jealous. You will wish you were me, if only for a moment.

I MET PETER MAYHEW. AS IN CHEWBACCA. AS IN THE WOOKIEE.

You may all admire me. Oh yes. That’s nice. Thank you. Ok. Enough. No, stop. Really. It’s hard to be admired so.

He was so cool. He was so tall. He made goofy faces in his pictures. He was funny when I asked him to sign my shirt. Warmed up his hands and all and said “Better hurry before the wife gets back.” and laughed. I almost cried. OK, I did cry. When I first walked in, I immediately saw Ernie Hudson. The excitement got to me and I teared up a little. And then when I saw Peter I started to get that excitement again. But I held it in check because Nick was making fun of me. And after Peter signed my shirt, we met Ernie, and I got a photograph signed. And we took a picture. And life was good.

I have now broached a level of nerdiness that I never thought would happen. And I like it!
