an introvert goes to comic con

Louisville, KY:  March 29, 2014

Hannah bought us tickets to go to this year’s Louisville Comic Con and got me a very special ticket to meet Matt Smtih — as in the 11th Doctor.

I was very excited and at the same time a bit apprehensive about the crowd size.  I know I don’t do well in large loud crowds.  But there was no way I was going to miss Matt Smith.

Walking into that room was like parting a curtain of voices, energy and emotion.  I could feel it, smell it, and taste it.  It was very overwhelming.   Kelly stayed quite close to me and kept people from bumping into me.  After a few minutes I was able to find my “center or stillness” and was able to relax and enjoy the day.

Best 3 minutes of the day — walking down the line and seeing Matt, listening to his wonderful British accent, and actually having a conversation with him.  AWESOME!!

Kelly, Hannah and I had a great time together and finished up the day with coffee/

    That was a fun day. And at least you weren’t a shrieking fan girl…like our immediate neighbor in the line!

    I did maintain my cool! It was terribly exciting to see him though.
