I couldn't stop staring because they looked exactly like the couple in my WIP! Brandon and Chelsea, right there in Borders!
The guy was tall and lanky with floppy blonde hair, a white t-shirt, and flip flops, and the girl was tiny and Asian with an adorable outfit and perfect hair. They weren't a perfect match to my characters - the guy didn't have glasses and the girl obviously wasn't Korean. But they were close enough...and they were there in the flesh.
I was very excited.
Thanks to the encouragement of Twitter, I turned off the shutter noise on my phone camera and snapped a quick picture of them.
Aren't they so adorable?
It's not the best picture, but I do think it captures their cuteness.
They eventually moved tables...probably to avoid my creepy staring. I'm not very subtle when I find something I want to look at.
Have you ever seen your characters out walking around? Were you a stalker like me who took a picture?
* My place was being fumigated for termites this week, so I was in a hotel for a couple of days. Then when I could get back in, they were doing construction outside, so there was so much banging I had to go into hiding at Borders. I can't handle the banging.
