Should I be honest about who I really am as a person and factor in twenty minutes of bedside-sitting-and-staring-into-space time?

Sam Irby sees me.

Hello, 911? Is some invisible force going to push me down this flight of stairs?

Time to get in the hold queue at the library, because I've been directly called out!

I'm a big fan of her newsletter, where she has been posting daily recaps of Judge Matthis episodes. I am now deeply emotionally invested in Judge Matthis.

just wanted to take a brief moment here to braggy brag that I got to meet Sam in real life when we performed on the same bill this past weekend at Write Club in Chicago where she told a story about pissing and it was hilarious and awful and I love her

If I had met the author of "We Are Never Meeting in Real Life" in Real Life, I would be pretty braggy, too.

Oh god yes, every damn time!
