I am too tired to explain it all. Here’s a shorter version.
Way back when, I did a couple posts on Delilah, from The Delilah Show featured on many soft-rock stations nation wide. Turns out, they read it and sent me an email to let them know when I would next be in the Seattle area so that I might get to see the women herself at her cafe‘.
I, in turn, emailed back to say that I was coming for a visit. Yesterday I received an email saying that she was going to be at Delilah’s Cozy Kitchin’ today, and that was the only time that was gonna work. Oh, and her cafe was six hours from where I was AND it was going to be at 11:30am. So, I woke up at five this morning and made the drive. Totally worth it. She gave me a signed book and a signed photo. Really nice woman, who has TEN KIDS!! Five of those kids were milling around her shop. The man standing sitting next to her asked if I wanted an autograph from him as well. I felt like an enormous idiot, but I had no clue who he was. Turns out he is the local DJ from the radio station where she airs here in Seattle. I did explain to him that I do not live there, and I hope that made me look less like a ninny.
Then, of course I got a picture with her. The woman is much taller than I expected. I don’t exactly know what I expected, but she was taller than that.
Guess which one of us got no sleep last night?
Oh yeah, the best part. When I met her she said, “Oh, yeah, I read your blog last night!”
Now if I could only do the same with Robert Smith…
