traveling is great because...

...sometimes you end up meeting really interesting people when you least expect it. Like today, when I sat next to an almost famous Christian rock musician on the airplane who is 32 years old and has never had a cocktail.

Need I say this is about as far out of the box as it gets for me?

When I told my new friend about my deep personal relationship with cocktails, specifically endangered ones, he politely asked my advice on what he should try as, you know, his first cocktail ever. I have been delightedly puzzling over the answer since.

I can only imagine how strange our conversation must have sounded to the surrounding passengers: me going on and on about my book projects, one on blondeness and the other about cocktails; he telling me about life on the road as a Christian rock musician and his new baby. And both of us extolling the virtues of sustainable agriculture and locavore eating. I have to say, it was pretty rad.

What did you do this Saturday?

I think you should dye your hair purple like you did in High School

Where's the link love Kitty? Gotta send some people to our web site!

I also thought it was pretty 'rad' to meet an author from Boston who seemed obsessed with drinks that I've never even really thought about having!

Hope you enjoyed your time away!

Thanks for stopping by Glen! Hope the tour is going well, too. The post has been edited to include proper linkage:) I'm currently conferring with my cocktail friends and will be in touch about what we recommend as your *first* cocktail ever!

As for you, anonymous, you obviously knew me in high school and you therefore know that my purple hair looked totally silly. But thanks for the feedback. Don't you think I make a better blonde?
