Crazy morning!

When I say that crazy shit happens to me, I’m not kidding.  I really don’t know what it is about me that attracts the craziness.  Here’s an episode that made me laugh and humbled me.

So this morning, I stopped by one of my favorite gas stations because I forgot my 5 hour energy.  While in line, I noticed that two women kept switching between staring at me and looking at their phones.  Anyone else’s guard go up?  Just me?  Okay.  LOL.  I’m used to people staring.  I look like a Samoan linebacker, have light brown eyes that people seem to enjoy, huge lips, and both arms are covered in tattoos.  So I just ignored them and checked out and went out to my car.  Just as I was about to open my door, the women approached me.  Here’s how the fascinating convo went:

Woman 1: Excuse me, sorry to bother you, but is this you?  (Shows me her phone, which has a comment made by my Super Fave from yesterday. Then taps on my name to bring up my public FB profile.)

Me: (A little creeped out.)  Um yes…

Woman 1: And that’s Audrey Carlan in your pic with you, right?

Me: Oh yeah, my Super Fave!

Woman 2: That’s so cool.  So you’re the Ceej she calls a badass beta and her friend?

Me: Definitely.  She’s amazing.

Woman 1: Wait.  I’ve seen your name somewhere else.  (taps through her phone and after a minute, pulls up part of “LIFE”.)  This is you, too, right?  She wrote a character for you.

Me: (How did she know it was me?  The description in Life was amazingly flattering!) Oh yeah.  Thrill of my life seeing my name in one of her books.

Woman 2: Can we get your autograph?

Me: (completely dumbfounded) Uh…I’m not the famous one.  I didn’t write any of this.  Are you sure?

Woman 2: Yes!  You are famous!  You’re in her book!

Me: (looking around) Is this a prank or a joke?  I’m not famous.  I’m just a lucky girl who knows the Global Phenomenon.  You really want my autograph?

Woman 1: (pulls on the other woman’s arm) We don’t want to make you mad.  We just think it would be cool to have your autograph.

Me: Oh I’m not mad. But I'll do it.


Crazy, right?  My Super Fave is giving me heart and spirit lifts without even trying!

<sigh> My life is never boring.
