Yesterday afternoon, I was at the gas station and some young chick–about 16 years old–ran up to me and said, “Are you really La Bella Noire?” I was taken for a loop, but told her I was and she got all excited. “I hope your toes are better and I hope your job isn’t so ghetto anymore”, she said. I asked her where she knew me from and she said she saw my picture on one of my friend’s Fac.e.book albums, then tracked me down to my blog from there.
I didn’t know if I should be flattered or scared for my life. I know I’ve recognized people that I thought I saw online, but I never went up to them and invaded their personal bubble. And I’ve never staked someone out from a site like Mys.p.ace or F.ac.e.book to their blog and been proud of it. D said I should take down my pics and close my F.ac.ebook account because of this incident, but I’m not about to rearrange my life because of some kid.
But now I wonder, have any of yall ever run into someone from the internet? I don’t mean someone you met on a dating site either–I mean you read their website or something and see them in person. Hmmm….?
