• Guy who owns local theater/music venue walked into my house and poured himself and several other townies giant glasses of tequila and filled the bottle cap for me, then left me standing in the kitchen staring at this tiny bit of tequila, wondering what the hell that was all about.
• Woman I only just recently met showed up at my house wearing a giant tutu and fairy wings, carrying a bag of cookies (crispy thin lace type cookie wafers with a mix of chocolate chunks, ganache, and dried cherries as filling). She said she’d been looking for the cookies since she’d had them at my house, and finally found them, and finally found me, so here she was to deliver the cookies. Huge poofy, feathery hug and she was gone in a swirl of glitter.
• I was at a table with President Obama talking about making subsidies available to small family farms growing fruits and vegetables. My mother was there and she kept putting her hands over my eyes as I was talking, and whispering in my ear honey can you even believe you’re sitting at a table with the President of the United States? Can you believe he’s even speaking to you? I couldn’t make her understand that she was making it so I couldn’t hear a thing he said.
