my 12″ world collides with the real one

It’s kind of strange, in a good way, when my 12″ world collides with the “real” one.

  • Recognizing someone from the coffee shop.
  • Realizing I was at the grand opening of the new location for Hammerpress at the same time as my favorite KC comic artist.
  • Running into Heidi at said grand opening. We were standing next to each other for a good thirty seconds before I realized who I was standing next to. I would not have even known about Hammerpress were it not for Heidi’s post and comment on the place.
  • Singling out Brady Vest, Hammerpress proprietor, from the others in the impressive crowd because I’d seen his picture online in the Pitch article. We talked very briefly about the possibility of his involvement with one or more of my classes next year. Mr. Vest is very cool. I am a dork.

  1. “We were standing next to each other for a good thirty seconds before I realized…” faster than Heidi, who was completely spacing out at that point. I think I was giddy from all the print surrounding me.
    Dorks wouldn’t influence at least four other people to volunteer to become words in a tattooed short story. :)
