Brushes with fame.

After two hours of standing in line, waiting patiently, and trying to think of something clever / interesting / non-douchey to say, this happened:

Amy: Hello!

Me: Hi.

Amy: Oh, "Tyler." You're my first Tyler today!

Me: Oh. That's pretty exciting.

Amy: "Oh. That's pretty exciting." You sure sound pretty excited.

Me: Well, I'm just trying to keep it cool. You know, I don't want to embarrass myself, just in case I ever see you again.

Amy (while making direct eye contact): Oh, we'll be seeing each other again. [Beat] Okay, thank you!

Me: Bye!

Amy: ...and good luck at the clinic!

Aaaaand scene.

brilliant! well played.

i had a fun book signing brush with david awhile back, and the exchange was less awesome. but he did write "thank you for making me rich" in my book.

I'm late on this, but getting a "good luck at the clinic" farewell from Amy Sedaris is about as awesome as it gets. Well, for book signings at least.

I have to second that. Having Amy Sedaris tell you Good luck at the clinic is the cultural equivalent of having Babe Ruth take you out to hit a few balls.
