Upon arrival in Denver, we walked around the neighborhood before heading back to the hotel for the free wine happy hour. The hour did make us happier after being crunched up in economy seats on the plane. Is there such a thing as economy when it comes to buying plane tickets? We arrived at The Magnolia just in time for wine and cookies and pink milk in the Magnolia bar. Pink milk!
The breakfast at the Magnolia included a choice of eggs, sausage, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, and cereal.
This year, 32 Poems did not have a table. That meant I could move around as I pleased. I surfed the bookfair and ran into lovely people such as Greg Fraser, Skip Horack, Erika Meitner, Roger Lathbury, Oliver de la Paz, and more and more. Should I use initials? I don’t know.
OTHER PERSON: What is your involvement here?
ME: I am self involved.
OTHER PERSON: Ha, me too.
A Second Conversation:
OTHER PERSON: I can’t do anymore small talk.
ME: I can’t either.
BOTH: Deep sighs of relief.
