Five years ago, I found dry rot in the siding of my house. It was my own fault for not painting sooner. (What can I say? I was busy writing.) Being cheap I decided to repair it myself and placed an order with Sutherland Lumber.
The delivery driver, Brent, was both kind and helpful. After mentioning that he was a fan of the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, we soon began comparing nerd hobbies. I eventually shared that I wrote a series of fantasy books and sold quite a few at conventions thanks to my muse, Cristi.
I always joke that people enjoy talking to me at cons but would much rather look at Cristi. (Not really a joke.) At larger conventions, Cristi will wander while carrying a copy of Angst. People will often stop her to take a picture. To my surprise, Brent had a photo of Cristi rocking one of her chainmail costumes at Planet Comicon. I thought that was pretty cool and wanted to thank him for the delivery, so I gave him a copy of Angst.
