Setting: The Barn, Bread Loaf campus of Middlebury College, a series of wicker lounge chairs along the wall.
Me: So, where are you here from?
Christopher Castellani: Boston. [Pause] This is going to sound weird, but I think I know you.
Chris: I think we’re myspace friends.
Me: . . .
Chris: I’m almost never on myspace, but a little while back I got a friend request from a writer who looked pretty interesting, so I took it.
Me: Yeah. It’s basically hookers and bands on myspace. And me.
Chris: Yes. Hookers and writers on myspace, basically.
Me: That was me. It’s nice to meet you.
Chris: It’s nice to meet you.
