A month ago, I tweeted a picture of my literary idol William Gibson (@greatdismal).
Being a nobody on Twitter, I figured my tweet into the garbage pit that is Twitter would go unnoticed.
But no. I got a notification that someone replied to me.
I opened my Twitter app on my phone. I clicked the notification button. And there, on my screen, staring at me was a reply by William Gibson himself.
The author I idolize replied to little old me. I was giddy as hell.
I’m still giddy.
Here’s the tweet:
Montreal Metro.— William Gibson (@GreatDismal) August 21, 2019
I’m still flying high here. Make fun of me, mock me. But I’m happy that my idol recognized me with two words. Heeeheee.
