a stranger talked to me at von’s today. which is quite unusual, i’m fairly invisible as things go. but my car isn’t invisible. well, it kind of is. i mean, gray seven year old buick you know. but the license plates are certainly remarkable.
he walks over, says ‘i bet a lot of people wanted that plate’ and i told him that yes, i was extremely pleased to find them available as late as november of 2000. and he said, so you have a website? please note that all this is extremely awkward-sounding, i’m not the most conversationally fluent person. briefly it occurred to me to tell him the URL and then i thought, no, not one of those conversations where you try to explain to the uninitiated what a blog is… anyway, i told him i yeah, i do, and i also do this for a living and i also spend all the rest of my time online, only going out for supplies (indicating groceries in my hand). he agreed with that thought, and we awkwardly took our leave of the conversation.
if he didn’t think only leaving the house/internet for supplies was weird, maybe i should have given him my URL.
