I’ve been a huge fan of Alison’s since I was a baby dyke in college.
Alison was great on the panel, when she could get a word in. The two men on stage with her kind of took over. After it was over Elizabeth wanted to go up and say hello. “I don’t know,” I said. “I’m not good at these things.”
Just then Alison walked by us and Elizabeth stuck out her hand and started to tell her how much she enjoyed her work. Alison said thanks, then looked at me and said, “Don’t I know you?” I stuck my hand out, “Kathy Belge,” I said. “Dipstick!” she exclaimed. “I love your column.”
Can a cooler thing than that happen to me, ever? I don’t think so.
