She chatted with our town folk as if she had lived here all of her life and as if she were one of us. It made us feel so special.
I was SO proud and SO name-dropping crazy, because I was able to say I "know" her (you know, telling everyone about her beautiful home and what lovely tablescapes she does)! If they got the impression that I had been to visit her in her home, that wasn't my fault! I never intended to leave that impression!
I was so busy bragging about my "friendship" that the author did not get much of a chance to talk (sorry Michael Lee). Of course, when I'm around NOBODY gets much of a chance to talk (sorry world), but you would think I'd let a famous, visiting author talk! You know what they say, "pride goeth before the fall". I am now feeling horrible about Michael Lee coming all of this way to talk about her book, and then having to sit there and listen to ME talk! I do sincerely apologize Michael Lee.
