THE TIME MINDY KALING STOLE MY SHARPIE

@mindy uncool
  1. At the end of May I went to BookCon with my best friend Mya
    That's us being cute and strange like usual.
  2. The main reason we wanted to go was to see Mindy Kaling in conversation with BJ Novak.
  3. We both love her and her book
  4. So we waited in line for four hours to get really good seats
  5. It was a grueling process and we were way too close to everyone
    This picture was taken in hour three
  6. Finally, we got our wristbands, and it was almost time
  7. They opened the doors and everyone started running. Like fucking sprinting. The line looped around so people started breaking the middle barrier. It was insane.
  8. We got gr8 seats though.
  9. We were this close
    Not zoomed
  10. It was amazing.
    Highlight: "You're the baddest of the good boys. You're like the kid smoking weed at space camp."
  11. At the end, Mindy walked to the front of the stage and everyone ran up.
    You bet I was prepared for this. I whipped out my best sharpie and my copy of the book in one swift motion.
  12. Everyone was holding up their books to be signed, but there was no pen in sight. Except my sharpie.
  13. So took Mindy took my sharpie, signed my book first, signed a few more, waved, and walked off stage.
  14. First thought: MINDY KALING JUST SIGNED MY COPY OF HER BOOK
    NICE
  15. Second thought: MINDY KALING JUST WALKED OFF STAGE WITH MY BEST SHARPIE
  16. This haunts me.
  17. I think about that sharpie a lot.
