So last month I had the privilege of reading at Essay Fiesta, an awesome monthly non-fiction reading series.
I read a very very abridged version of an essay I've been working on about the name Willy. Let me know what you think!
Special thanks to Pat and/or Melyssa for taking the video (not sure which one of you actually recorded it).

For the most part, the memories of my two-day visit in San Francisco blurred together like the cryptic directions on my GPS. I blindly went where I was told to go. But two particular experiences stick out, both of which occurred on public transportation. I should preface these stories by saying that I have grown very accustomed to the unwritten laws of riding public transport in a big city, where getting from one place to another is a serious, silent business. But not so in San Francisco.
