After waiting patiently in Mindy Kaling’s book signing line, the last of us finally approached the table where she was seated. I assumed she’d be tired and annoyed with us fans. But with glittery nails and baubles and a huge smile, she said “Oh no! I can see the end of the line! I don’t want this to be over…”
I didn’t have anything interesting or witty to say. Something like “MindyIloveyoursenseofhumorandyou’resosmartandpretty“. She was gracious and funny and gorgeous in person. She talked briefly before the signing, doling out a little advice on writing and fashion and being popular (or not). And in LA, when you go to see one celebrity, you’ll likely see another. Know Tavi Gevinson, the 15-year-old style blogger? She was there too.
I always feel lucky to hang out with my lady heroes. They are always more beautiful in person. And twice as lovely.
