This week’s CWILL BC question is: Are you an introvert or an extrovert? As my answer, here’s the story of how I met Bill Richardson, writer and former CBC host. We were at some sort of event, and he was the MC.
Tanya: Hey, that’s Bill Richardson.
Tanya: The MC. And he’s on the radio. And I loooooove him.
Min (pulling me): Let’s go say hello.
Tanya: What? Noooooooooo.
Min: But he’s sitting by himself.
Tanya: What if he wants to be?
Min: No one wants to sit by themselves at this sort of thing.
Tanya: What if he’s gathering his thoughts?
Min: That’s ridiculous.
Tanya: We can’t.
And we might have continued this way forever if Min hadn’t dragged me over, introduced us, sat down, and proceeded to have a long and funny conversation while I concentrated on not sweating too profusely.
