So this weekend, the boy got to meet the author of his (current) all-time favorite book series, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid. Last Monday saw the release of the latest, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid - Dog Days, and Jeff Kinney was signing books at the University of Washington Seattle bookstore.
He schlepped all his books there, and had them all signed and thought it was cool. His mother, on the other hand, had been super-excited about it, and showed WAY more enthusiasm than needed, despite the fact she grows tired of hearing about the books.
You know how you have a visual of how you imagined someone to look, and then you meet them and you are thinking "You don't look anything like I thought you would"? Bingo.
