Close enough to smell her!

Alice Waters, that is.  At Union Square.  This morning.  I stood about five feet from her.  Then she walked by me, passing within about 2 feet of me.  Adam kept whispering, "Say something!  Say something!"  Bug was just confused as to why we were all a-thither.

No, I did not take a picture.  No, I didn't say anything.  Don't bother giving me a hard time about it - Adam already harrassed me within an inch of my life.  I won't regret not saying anything, though.  I was just thrilled to have seen her, not to mention that the market was insane - it was not a good time to stop someone and tell them you believe in their philosophies...you think their ideas about school lunches are right on...you love Chez Panisse...you love her Edible Schoolyard project...you think she's absolutely lovely...you want to invite her over for dinner...

See why I didn't say anything to her?  I'm embarrassing.

Eat, drink, and keep those heroes on a pedestal until they prove otherwise...

I love this post, and I understand. I could have been a bit more restrained when I met Sherman Alexie at BEA. He was very, very kind about my enthusiasm, though (which just made me appreciate him more). :o)
