1. Cashier: "I need to see your license."
Her: "It's a new thing for buying cough medicine, I have to enter your birthday."
Me: (handing it over) "It's today! Does this count as being carded?"
Her: "Definitely. Happy Birthday! Doing anything fun to celebrate?"
Me: "Performing in New York City tonight for one of The Moth's Mainstage Events."
Her: "Are you famous?"
Me: "Not yet."
2. On Main Street in town on a sandwich board outside the art shop:
3. Hey, there's my name!
4. Hanging out with the Producers and Directors at the Moth, many of whose names I always hear mentioned on the podcasts so I felt totally giddy.
5. This was supposed to be video of me being introduced but it just does not want to upload right now. So instead I leave you with this totally not flattering nor high quality photo. But I shall try with the video again later!
