Do you get what this is? This is a tweet from Oprah to me! From Oprah herself. That little blue checkmark? That means she’s verified. Verified. Oprah. Verified Oprah tweeted me. ME!
I happened to be sitting in the Nashville airport at approximately 7:30 am waiting for my flight back to Denver when I decided to get caught up on twitter.
When I saw that tweet.
I was sitting down, but I stopped. My heart stopped, my breathing stopped and I’m pretty sure I didn’t blink for a full two minutes. And then I slowly came to and began to look around the room at the other hundred people waiting for the flight. Did they understand who I was? Who I had just become? Did that family of dad, mom and two girls know that they were sitting next to Oprah’s newest BFF? And that my BFF was going to be on Jimmy Kimmel that night?
They may have figured it out eventually, but the lady that sat next to me on the airplane that told me to “keep that to yourself” when I sneezed rather than offering a God Bless You, she obviously had no clue. Hey, I sneezed into my arm!!
And then I saw another tweet from Oprah’s Producer Sheri Salata. SHE retweeted one of my tweets too! Seriously.

Where do I go from here, you ask?
It’s going to be tough. I’ll probably just wait for her people to get in contact with my people so we can have lunch or go catfishing, or bungee trampoline. You know, things that BFF’s do these days.
Well, until then, I’ll probably just go over to JoAnn’s to have my tweets framed. And then I should probably call some professionals in to hang the priceless piece above my bed. Because my life is now complete.
