I’m pretty sure my idol Emily Schuman thinks i’m stalking her.
The first time I ran into her, it was at my all time favorite restaurant, which I frequent about once a week, Izakaya.
“You are my idol. I read your blog everyday. I am your biggest fan,” I said as she walked out of the restaurant.
Like I was on the verge of tears, not really. But like, maybe.
So today, I met up with my friend Kayla at Izakaya for lunch.
It was packed.
I walk in looking so beat.
I was wearing gym clothes, tennis shoes, and my Arizona hat.
I walk in, and look to my left and there she is sitting there.
I read her blog Cupcakes and Cashmere everyday and I almost wanted to wave and be like, “Hey!” As if we we’re friends?
So embarrassed since, that was the place I saw her last, I sit at the sushi bar.
Kayla arrives and the first thing she says is, “Um, i’m pretty sure Emily Schuman is sitting at the front of the restaurant.”
I told her the story of how I saw her at Izakaya for the first time.
“Ugh like of all days I am wearing my reading glasses.”
And that was the highlight of my day.
