A conversation between myself and Anthony Bourdain:
Me: Tony? Would it be possible to take a picture with you?
Him: Of course.
Me: (shyly holding up my book) Um, would it be okay if I held this? I mean, it’s not like I’m asking you to endorse it or anything.
Him: Hey, as long as you hold it, man, that’s cool.
Me: Thank you so much, I really love your work. I hope Seattle shows you a good time.
Him: (with sly smile) It always does.
