While Evany thinks it’s the coolest thing to excuse out of an art show by saying you’re busy last-minute shopping for a ball gown, I think it’s much more awesome to do all first introductions with people you idolize by shouting, “I HAVE GO BUY COOKING OIL!

And it’s true that only AB would email me to say, “I need you to go to Silverlake and buy me some art.” It makes me look over my shoulder, because how did she know about the art show that Evany and I had just been emailing about while Evany was still in Oakland? How did AB, who lives in LOUISIANA know that Evany was coming to Los Angeles and planning a trip to Silverlake to the obscure little art show? She didn’t, but when I said I wasn’t going, but I thought maybe Evany was, how did she find a way to call Evany? And then how did she get Evany to become an art dealer for the evening, and purchase a piece for her to send to LOUISIANA?

How? Because Anna Beth is the puppetmaster.

Oh, you think you’re just sitting there living your life. You think that, but you’re wrong. And one day, you’ll be called upon. Just be ready, because Miss Chao don’t cotton no fools.
