Maybe We Were Down On Church Street At The Same Time One Day

While reading my alumni magazine yesterday, I learned that Leslea Newman and I were both at The University of Vermont at the same time for two years when we were undergraduates.

I've tried to remember anything I did that she might have done, some way that we might have been in the same room or bar or something. But I'm drawing a blank.

I did hear her speak at the Connecticut Children's Book Fair a couple of years ago. In fact, Holy Moses, we both spoke there in 2009.

Yet, still, we never met.

Seriously, this kind of thing happens to me all the time.

Very funny, Gail. My favorite part of the whole post is the labels.

University of Vermont must have been a fun place to go to school.

BTW, thanks for commenting on my blog. Delighted to discover yours.
