If you give a writer a forum…

If you give a writer a forum, she just may want to tell you about awakening to a tweet from a blogging champion.

Morning Tweet:

Morning Tweet:

“So, what time are we thinking for brunch?”

And if she tells you about the blogging champion’s tweet, then she’s going to want to tell you about going to brunch with the literary giant, two blogging champions and a rock-solid historian friend.

And if she tells you about brunch, then she’s going to want to tell you about meandering through a bookstore with her literacy giant, blogging champions and super cool teacher friends.

And if she tells you about the bookstore meandering, she’s going to want to tell you about stopping at Brooklyn eyeglass store and shopping for a super cool set of new eyeglass frames while these fantastic literacy people checked their twitter accounts all the while agreeing her new frames were perfect on her face.

And if she tells you about the eye glass store, she’s going to want to tell you about the funny ride on the subway back to Manhattan with her friends and a stranger who was loud and funny and a little bit sideways.

And if she tells you about the stranger, she’s going to want to tell you all about wandering through Washington Park and happening upon a group of performers who were athletic and funny and flipped up and over the heads of three kids from the on-looking crowd.

And if she tells you about the performers, she is going to want to tell you all about shopping at NYU and then realizing that The Public Theater was nearby.

And if she tells you about NYU and Public Theater, she’s going to want to tell you all about meeting Lin-Manuel Miranda who she admires so much for his work on Hamilton the nearly ON Broadway play about “hip hop master” and treasury secretary, Alexander Hamilton.

  3. lf you write a slice like this, I’m going to have to tell you how amazing it is! I will also have to say how jealous I am that I wasn’t there with you. So glad you had such a wonderful day, and that I got to see you on Saturday.
