I give up. God just hates me.
I’ve been trying to meet this writer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Michael Heaton for like 15 years now. In 1992, I sent my mother to tape record a talk he gave at a local library because I wasn’t in town and wanted to learn how to be a columnist. Since then I’ve probably made his life miserable with emails of various levels of sanity trying to glean some kind of advice from him. So he finally is making a book signing appearance and actually invited me down. I was all ready to go there tonight and meet him and hopefully impress him with the fact that I still have his book from 1992 when I look at the club’s website and find out that the signing was last week.
He sent me the email invitation on Wednesday – I got it Sunday morning! How that even fucking possible? God is holding up my emails just to fuck with my life! I’m seriously reaching the Salieri breaking point!
