and then we really met

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.

Me: Really?

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.
